Description of problem:
There is a file name conflict for /usr/bin/docker between 2 Fedora 20 packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
docker-1.5-10.fc20.x86_64 (f20 updates, a dockapp that provides a system tray
for WindowMaker, XFCE etc.)
docker-io-0.11.1-1.fc20.x86_64.rpm (f20 updates, a new Linux containerization
app that has proven very popular)
How reproducible: Consistent.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo yum install docker
2. sudo yum install docker-io
Transaction check error:
file /usr/bin/docker from install of docker-io-0.11.1-1.fc20.x86_64 conflicts
with file from package docker-1.5-10.fc20.x86_64
All packages in F20 should be able to co-exist unless a conflict is documented
in the RPM file.
Since the conflict is only file naming, one of these packages could be patched
to allow it to co-exist with the other.
Possible workaround that keeps docker working for me follows.
(It allows docker-io to install, but I am not sure if docker-io is fully
sudo mv /usr/bin/docker /usr/bin/wmdocker
# user must change dock icons that link to docker to point to wmdocker
sudo yum install docker-io --downloadonly
sudo rpm -Uvf --force docker-io-0.11.1-1.fc20.x86_64.rpm
The conflict probably also exists in rawhide. (unverified)
The upstream binary in both packages is 'docker'. Debian/Ubuntu rename their
binary to 'docker-io' to deal with the conflict.
There is a plan to replace the 'docker' package with a renamed 'wmdocker'
package in F21. (Bug # 1043676). However, that will take until F23 release to
complete the Obsoletes/Expires process. In the meantime, any user with docker
from F20 or rawhide will be unable to install docker-io, unless they use the
