Here's what I get:
%> yum update
Error: Missing Dependency: libgnokii.so.3 is needed by package kdepim
Error: Missing Dependency: libdvdread.so.3 is needed by package k3b
Apparently k3b and kdepim rely on older versions of libgnokii and libdvdread
than are provided by the current EPEL, so updates fail unless I disable EPEL,
or explicitly disable gnokii and libdvdread from the updates. I can do that,
but I wonder if there is a cleaner way? It would be ok with me to just
remove gnokii, but it is a prerequisite for kdepim.
This probably isn't cleaner, but I find that I have explicitly locked
out the newest versions of gnokii and libdvdread on EPEL, which still
has an earlier gnokii, and I have libdvdread from ATrpms. I use k3b -
although a recent change of hardware has given problems with dma. I
don't use kdepim but have it installed.
