Error Installing Interworx - ERROR: YUM removed failed.

I’m trying to install interworx on a brand new fresh dedicated centos 5.2 server (not vps).

I’m following the directions here:

When I get to this point: sh

I get this:

Anyone know how to remove these possible conflicting packages either automatically or manually?


Hi Ben,

Try doing this first, it may fix the “yum” problem.

yum update yum



Try running:

yum update yum

to update yum and then see if the install works.

Hahaha if I was only a minute faster…

Lol! you guys Rule!! that worked. Kudos to both.

No no…Paul rules. I’m too slow :frowning: he gets all the kudos hahaha

It’s all OK, but iworx needs more Paul’s and more Greg’s. Only then iworx and it’s community could be back on track.
