Default Too new readline on FC8

Somehow I managed to load readline-5.2-9.fc8.x86_64 on my Fedora 8 box.
It seems to be newer than any version currently available from the
standard mirrors (readline-5.2-7.fc8). I only point to standard
mirrors. Maybe this newer version was temporarily made available, then
removed.


This is probably a stupid question, but how do I replace the *-9 version
with the -7 version using yum?


Is it...

yum install [some kind of force option] readline-5.2-7.fc8

Thanks,
Pete

FWIW, I have readline-5.2-9.fc8 on my systems; it came through on
January 17.

You'd need to download the old package and then rpm -u --oldpackage
<filename>.

It's causing me grief...

# package-cleanup --orphans
Setting up yum
readline-5.2-9.fc8.x86_64
dbus-python-0.82.3-1.fc7.x86_64
readline-devel-5.2-9.fc8.x86_64

Johnathan, do you have yum-utils installed?

Do you see the same thing?

Thanks for the help,
Pete

Did you happen to enable updates-testing at some point? That's where
readline-5.2-9.fc8.x86_64 came from I believe. Currently, 5.2-10.fc8
is the latest in updates-testing.

Sounds good regardless of my computer situation.

I neglected to read

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/YumUpgradeFaq

when upgrading from 7 -> 8. Someone on this list pointed this web page
out to me so I gave it a look. I have been having problems with X
freezing and saw that, during the upgrade process, I should use


yum groupinstall sound-and-video gnome-desktop

because I use Gnome. When I try it I get...

Transaction Check Error:
package readline-5.2-9.fc8.x86_64 (which is newer than
readline-5.2-7.fc8.i386) is already installed
file /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/invest/__init__.pyc from
install of gnome-applets-2.20.0-8.fc8.i386 conflicts with file from
package gnome-applets-2.20.0-8.fc8.x86_64

.
.
.

So that's why I started asking about a readline that is newer that what
is in the current F8 mirrors.


In /etc/yum.repos.d all of the testing and development repos have
"enable=0".


Any advice?

Thanks for the help Todd,
Pete

Note the x86_64 v i386 in the first message.

# rpm -q readline gnome-applets
--qf="%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-%{arch}
"


If you want to update one of the arch packages, you have to do both.

To get an older package, search the other fedora mirrors until you find
it. mirrors.fedoraproject.org
