Try package-cleanup in yum-utils.
Thanks very much.
Actually, my yum setup on this machine was so screwed up
that "sudo yum install yum-utils" got the response
that there was nothing to do,
even though package-cleanup was not found.
So I found the yum-utils rpm, and ran "rpm -Uvh yum-utils*".
It wasn't really clear what argument to give package-cleanup
but I said "sudo package-cleanup --cleandupes".
This cleared out 100-200 fc6 packages,
and now when I run "sudo yum update"
over 100 packages are updated or installed.
I'll study package-cleanup more carefully,
and see if there are any other arguments I should give.
