[Solved] freeipa- conflicts with ipa-

Post by lightman47 » 2018/06/15 16:10:26

I am trying to yum reinstall (done before on other machines) and am getting

Code: Select all

I got this one one of my machines in the past and merely yum erased freeipa-\*.\* - which fixed the problem. However, freeipa isn't installed on the problematic machine.


How to fix to get around this conflict? Thank you

Is yum itself up to date? There was a problem with the ipa packages because they 'provide' the freeipa-* versions of themselves and conflict with each other. This was treated as a yum bug and fixed in either 7.4 or 7.5.

According to comparisons between this machine and my normally used laptop, yum list installed yum\*.\* produces the identical entries on both. Nonetheless, I reinstalled yum and the machine is currently rebooting (HP DL380 G5 - the room heater). It'll be a bit before I can ssh back into it ;)

In truth I was hoping for you to 'slap my hand' for using one of the repos and find disabling same fixed it all. Alas.

OK - just got trickier
Now yum reinstall \*.\* produces the list, but now there are 4 unavailable packages (Important ones). Am open to suggestion. I am trying to avoid a "clean all" because afterwards I'll get to wait 2+ hours again for the download. If no ideas come to mind however, that's in the mental list of things to try.

OH, HANG ON !!! The idiot may be me and not the machine. More to come.

Well, it was just ugly. Eventually what I did was yum erase ipa\*.\*. I then did my complete reinstall without issue. I figure that if I run into trouble down the road I'll install ipa again.

Thank you.

Finale:

After reading up on what ipa does, I decided the machine probably needed it. I therefore installed ipa again which went smoothly.

I then ran a backup which also includes a 'yum update' at the end. All went well with no errors/issues.
