Rpm Conflict On New Install

CentOS 4 Comments

Yesterday I did a clean install of CentOS 6 -> Workstation -> Plasma.

I then added some recommended repo’s and did a yum update.

I’m now getting the following:

[root@lcomp5 ~]# yum check Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks ipa-client-4.4.0-14.el7.CentOS.4.x86_64 has installed conflicts freeipa-client: ipa-client-4.4.0-14.el7.CentOS.4.x86_64

[root@lcomp5 ~]#

(The yum check takes a good 5 minutes to run)

Googling shows that a number of people seem to be suffering from this but doesn’t seem to give a solution. Does anyone have any suggestion?

  • Cheers John, I did find that one after sending the post, but it still doesn’t give a solution. It just says that they’re going to fix ‘yum’ but that was in November and it’s still broken.

    I did see one post that said that ipaclient isn’t needed and that it can be removed. I’ve done this and the errors have gone away.

    Unfortunately I still have the problem where ‘yum check’ is taking in excess of 5 minutes though

  • As quoted in the bugzilla:

    “This seems to break _neither_ installation _nor_ update. From that point of view everything seems to be fine.”

    It’s not a priority fix, because it doesn’t actually cause a problem. It’s an unnecessary warning message. That’s the only consequence, a warning message.

    Exactly how long *should* yum check take? In the vein of “Doctor, Doctor, it hurts when I do this”, well, stop doing that.

    Is running yum check something you like to do often?


  • I was getting similr messages. To my knowledge I’m not using ipa, free or otherwise. They were conflicting, so I
    removed one. No more conflicts
