The description in PackageKit (which I had to go through in
unusual detail, because only the LiveCD had succeeded in installing F14)
made it sound (to me) like a thing to try.
Maybe my next move is to ssh in, become root, and command "Yum
remove cobbler"? That should at least get me to the next stage, right?

I'm not knowledgeable enough to blame anything; I'm just
reporting what I see, and can't cope with, hoping for enlightenment.
How do you know it completed? That upper case sure looked like an
urgent warning to me ....
Also, what is a good way (if there is one, short of removing
cobbler) to get to the next item??
