Libkcddb is blocking system update

If anyone tries to update their system they probably will find something like:

# urpmi --auto-update ... Installation failed: file /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/kcontrol/cddbretrieval/index.cache.bz2 from install of libkcddb5-5.21.0-2.x86_64 conflicts with file from package libkcddb-15.12.3-2.x86_64

libkcddb5 is a package pulled by upgrade to k3b 2.9.90. To work around this you’ll need to do:

# rpm -e --nodeps libkcddb
This allows for libkcddb5 to install and update should work again.

Bug report: 1645 – libkcddb breaks updates.

Yes it’s something about the filenames. Bero is already aware and he’s going to fix it.

Thank you for this information, Ben.
