That doesn't solve the problem, though.
Perhaps we're missing something when guessing what could be wrong. The
updates are fine. I see nothing wrong with their dependencies and
cannot reproduce the problem on FC5. The install of device-mapper also
fixed the previously missing entries in the rpm database. So, if a
manual update (with rpm -Uvh) of the two parted packages still fails,
something else might be corrupted.
