After some painstaking manual labor updating packages just a small handful at
a time, I realized that I had the 'yum-skip-broken' plugin installed, so a
simple 'yum --skip-droken update' command got all the rest of the available
updates that would work installed. That left me with just one update that cn
not be installed: e2fsprogs, which forces me to update e2fsprogs-devel at the
same time. It's the e2fsprogs-devel package that is depending on
device-mapper-devel, which doesn't seem to exist in the repos (at least, yum
can't find it).
