I have a YUM recurring error since ages and never wasn't
able to fix it.
I have 8 repositories, and YUM tries to update a package to an
OLDER version. The command 'yum search pilot-link'returns this:
pilot-link.i386 1:0.12.0-0.pre18.104.22.168 core-freshrpms
pilot-link.i386 2:0.11.8-12.4.fc5 updates-freshrpm
pilot-link.i386 1:0.12.0-0.pre22.214.171.124 installed
Yum is trying to install the 0.11.8-12.4.fc5 version (??!!),
that gives me error in dependencies and YUM doesn't update.
'yum list updates' shows pilot-link. I know how to prevent
this, but only for each case, excluding the package in the
Why does this happen? I think it has to do with the "2:" in
front of the version number, and have no idea why YUM puts this
in front! I always treated this as a serious YUM bug, but it was
never corrected. How to really prevent this?
Thank you very much for your time,
