What I did was start out by installing from a Fedora 13 x86_64 RC2 DVD 
to a brand new hard drive last Saturday. I used the "Desktop" install 
type and have installed other package groups of interest to me using 
yum. Last night I installed the "Development Tools" group and right 
after that, attempted to install the "Development Libraries" group. I 
got the error messages you see above from trying to install "Development 
Libraries". Perhaps I should not be trying to install the libraries 
group but instead do individual packages on an as-needed basis?
