Multiple conflicts following F8 upgrade - any solution?
I am fully aware this is a general issue but I did an upgrade from F8 on a stable 686 system that had additional packages from livna etc. Much of it is working, including divx filters etc.
However I have lots (>100) dependencies errors if I try to do an update. Sometimes I manage to update packages individually but I was wondering whether there is an automatic procedure I could try and use.
For instance I thought of removing *all* fc8 packages still in the system but even to do that I would need to force the deletion of the pack and then not sure whether a simple update would restore all the ones needed by all other packages (most likely not).
Is there a solution to this or should I wipe the whole thing and do a fresh install, which I'd rather not do?
