There is no conflict .... at least not a version conflict.  I do CD/DVD,
http and NFS kick starts all the time.
[johnny at myth ~]$ rpm -q --requires hotplug | grep initscripts
initscripts >= 7.93.14.EL

The above clearly says >= ... 7.93.25.EL is >= 7.93.14.EL, so that
dependency is met.  Not sure why your hotplug is set to "initscripts =
7.93.14.EL", or at least why it is being interpreted that way by
whatever process you are trying to use.
