Heya,

I'm trying to get rawhide running by yum updating a  minimal footprint F16 virtual
machine. Only @core package, so no gnome-* nothing else.

Here is some info:
#########################################################

Running Transaction Check
ERROR with transaction check vs depsolve:

 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Your transaction was saved, rerun it with: yum load-transaction
/tmp/yum_save_tx-2011-10-11-05-27lkgwPY.yumtx

Then I tried:
#########################################################
[root at dhcp201-139 ~]# rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
[root at dhcp201-139 ~]#
#########################################################


Tried to clean-up the yum cache, rpm dbs:
#########################################################
[root at dhcp201-139 ~]# rm -rf /var/cache/yum/*
[root at dhcp201-139 ~]# rm -rf /var/lib/rpm/__db*
[root at dhcp201-139 ~]# rpm --rebuilddb
#########################################################

Then re-tried :
[root at dhcp201-139 ~]# yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rawhide update

Still no dice. As it still throws --  'ERROR with transaction check vs depsolve:'

Any hints here?


Meanwhile, I tried to install a clean f16 minimal guest on a latest f16 host, and it just
hung. Details, I posted to fedora-virt list here -
