Problem updating X.Org software

Postby oldsysadmin » 2013/04/10 18:44:09

Recently the software update icon shined on my Centos boxes, one updated with no problems but the other one gave me a whole lot of trouble performing the updates.

After everything was set and done there were 50 updates remaining, all of them related to X.Org X11. Have tried to apply them all together using the GUI, fails; tried one by one using the GUI, fail, tried yum update, failed. All the attempts end up in the same result, a transaction error messege.

If using the GUI, get a pop up with the following text:

"Transaction error

An unspecified transaction error has occurred.
More information is available in the detailed report.

More Details
xorg-x11-drv-geode-2.11.12-1.el6.i686 requires xserver-abi(videodrv-10) >= 0

If using yum update get the following:

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest"

Can anyone help me resolve this?

Problem updating X.Org software

You have a 64-bit system which uses some 32-bit RPMs.

The message in full goes:

Error: Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root
cause is something else and multilib version checking is just
pointing it that there is a problem.

Try "yum upgrade" not "yum update" and see what happens.

Seems that there's no answer to this problem so how can I ignore those updates so they don't show up on the software update GUI or on yum update?

Nevermind, entered an exclusion on the yum.conf file for xorg-x11* and was able to update everything else.
