I've come across a few different errors trying to do a YUM update. Cant allocate memory and several packages that have been renamed conflict with current packages (the ones they are supposed to be replacing).

If I burned the DVD and did an update with that, would i still have these problems? Does it somehow know how to fix everything that get messed up?

It "should". I wouldn't think you should be having the problems you are having now though. Are you updating from F7 to F8 or from an earlier version?

7 to 8.
The naming problems are things such as python-newt-f8 conflicts with package newt-f7, but there is several instances (libuser, system-config-printer-libs, x264, et cetera, et cetera).

Some of the replacements work like theyre supposed to (ie. 'kdeprinting-libs-f8 replacing kdeprinting-f7')

Perhaps i'll try the new Ubuntu, seeing as i just replaced Debian with CentOS on my server.

I like to have both deb and rpm based distros running (for the sake of incompatibility ;) ).
