undocumented conflict between rpm-build and fontpackages-filesystem
Last modified: 2009-04-09 09:11:53 EDT
rpm-build currently provides /usr/lib/rpm/fontconfig.prov
fontpackages-filesystem used to provide this file
but rpm-build does not have an explicit conflicts on the old fontpackages-filesystem. Thus when you try to run yum update rpm\* or rpm -Uvh rpm\* they will fail.
If you first update fontpackages-filesystem and then try to update rpm everything works fine.
rpm needs to conflict with the old fontpackages-filesystem so package dependancies will get resolved properly rather than having it die on file dependancies....
This issue only ever existed temporarily in rawhide, I dont think it's worth fixing anymore especially as beta is out (and doesn't have this conflict)
