For me in FC6, xpdf depends on both poppler-utils and xpdf-utils, and
I can find no way to avoid the conflict without going around yum. The
measures mentioned in this thread do not work for me. I always get:
Transaction Check Error: file /usr/bin/pdftoppm conflicts between
attempted installs of poppler-utils-0.5.1-3.fc5 and
file /usr/share/man/man1/pdftoppm.1.gz conflicts between attempted
installs of poppler-utils-0.5.1-3.fc5 and xpdf-utils-3.01-12.1
I wish yum had a -force option.
You would probably be better served by running
from the yum-utils package. This should give information why yum is
showing a conflict. You might have results using some of the options to
the rpm program directly, depending on what problems package-cleanup
outputs. If you post what package-cleanup --problems outputs, a solution
might be suggested by reviewing the output.
This worked for FC6. Are you running FC6 as an upgraded system or FC5?
