CentOS release 5 (Final) 64 bit installed and have been running a web server from the PC for a few years. I trid "YUM Update" and after downloading 600MB when it tried to install I got the following error. Is there a way to install the updates and get past this error.

I am nor very linux savy

Looks like I jagged a fix for this. I looked at thye versions of dmraid that was installed and the 32 bit version wwas the one that was newer. I removed the 32 bit version and ran YUM update again. I will post if all goes well but it looks OK at this stage as it has passed the error

Well the install continued for a while till it seems to have stuck on Install of Kernel.

Updating : hwdata ################### [ 360/1046]
Updating : pciutils ################### [ 361/1046]
Installing: kernel ################### [ 362/1046]


The curser has been sitting under the last command for over 30 minutes. I will keep waiting but is there something I can do if it does not get past this point. Should I cnt C out of this and try Yum update again ???
Sould I reboot the PC to use the new kernel ??

Thanks

I have waited eight hours which is good for me. I know that most contributers would have been tucked up in bed during that time.

I stopped the install and started it again and it is updating again but with a smaller download.

Install 12 Package(s)
Update 163 Package(s)
Remove 0 Package(s)

Total download size: 202 M


So I will let you know what happens.........

That was a big mistake. All I got was a bunch, pages of errors on the screen. So I rebooted the PC and it did not start correctly and I had to go to the safe screen and logged in as root and tried to YUM Update again.

It started to do the update and I downloaded another 200 MB of updates but when it did the transaction test I got a bunch of errors that I needed to delete more i386 software.

I ran YUM Install after removing the software and it looks like all is well.

The only thing is that it is still loading kernal 2.6.18-8.el5 and not the new one that it downloaded ???

'package dmraid-1.0.0.rc14-5_RHEL4_U5'

That would indicate that you are running RHEL4 update 5 and not RHEL5. You cannot mix and match rpms across major revisions(at least not safely).

Post the results of:

cat /etc/redhat-release

Hi

You can close this thread as I have moved the server over to another machine and loaded 5.5.

Thanks
