RedHat 5.2 yum update errors

If you install RedHat 5.2 and try to do a “yum update” command, you get loads of errors about libxslt and libvorbis.

To solve these errors, type the following commands before you do a “yum update”.
# rpm -e --nodeps --allmatches libvorbis
# rpm -e --nodeps --allmatches libxslt-python libxslt-devel
# rpm -e --nodeps --allmatches libxslt
# rpm -e --nodeps --allmatches libvorbis-devel
# yum -y install libvorbis libxslt

Then you will find that “yum update” works as expected.
