I'm using this command: yum --releasever=15 --skip-broken distro-sync 
I'm getting the following errors, not sure what I need to do to correct it:
Running Transaction Test

Transaction Check Error:  file /usr/share/man/man2/quotactl.2.gz from install of man-pages-3.32-8.fc15.noarch conflicts with file from package quota-1:3.17-18.fc14.x86_64  file /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.Xfconf.service conflicts between attempted installs of xfconf-4.8.0-2.fc15.i686 and xfconf-4.8.0-2.fc15.x86_64
Any suggestions on how to correct the above?

why using preupgrade instead of "yum --releasever=xxx distro-sync"?

i made some hundret dist-upgrades with yum from F9 to F15 since
2006 and they are ALWAYS better than any crap restarting the system
without the possibilty to check basics like grub-config and hope
they will really boot
