I am updating an fc8 system that I have not used for a while. Software updater tells me that there are many updates needed (127 security). When I run the update (9/1/08), I get many errors, like:
file /usr/lib/libnm-util.so.0.0.0 from install of NetworkManager-glib-0.7.0-0.6.
9.svn3675.fc8.i386 conflicts with file from package NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.6.7.s

devel-2.12.8-2.fc8.x86_64 conflicts with file from package gtk2-devel-2.12.5-1.f
If I run Software updater again, it pulls up a list of updates that looks the same as the previous list, so it looks as if nothing is updated.
I do not need to develop i386 apps on this machine. I have edited yum.conf to "exclude *-devel.i386". But maybe that is not the correct string. Maybe yum is not used.
Question 1: What do I need to do to get the x86_64 updates installed?
Question 2: Does software updater use yum?
Question 3: Where is the Software updater log file?
