[CentOS] corrupt rpm problem

Hi Jim,

I think its a bit more serious than that, as a yum-y upgrade lists 100s 
of packages with the same type of conflict....

Here is the output from "yum list packagename"
 >yum list packagename
Setting up Repos
update                    100% |=========================|  951 B    00:00
base                      100% |=========================| 1.1 kB    00:00
addons                    100% |=========================|  951 B    00:00
extras                    100% |=========================| 1.1 kB    00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files
update    : ################################################## 33/33
base      : ################################################## 1628/1628
extras    : ################################################## 23/23

Output from yum -y upgrade is huge, but I give you some of it....

The history of this is that the first yum -y upgrade went ok, (296 
packages) but I ctrl-c'ed two by mistake as it was downloading them, yum 
carried on and installed the rest, but I thought I would yum again to 
get the two I missed and this problem cropped up..

Now it wants to update them all again and list a conflict for each... 
the error output for yum was not captured in the file I redirected it 
to, but essentially its the same as the one for mysql I showed you 
earlier but for every package it seems...
