    I tried upgrading from CentOS 4.3 to 4.4 but I get this error:

    Code:
    --> Running transaction check
    --> Processing Dependency: libgomp = 4.1.0-18.EL4 for package: gcc4
    --> Processing Dependency: glibc-common = 2.3.4-2.19 for package: glibc-dummy-centos-4
    --> Restarting Dependency Resolution with new changes.
    --> Populating transaction set with selected packages. Please wait.
    ---> Package libgomp.i386 0:4.1.0-18.EL4 set to be updated
    --> Running transaction check
    --> Processing Dependency: glibc-common = 2.3.4-2.19 for package: glibc-dummy-centos-4
    --> Finished Dependency Resolution
    Error: Missing Dependency: glibc-common = 2.3.4-2.19 is needed by package glibc-dummy-centos-4
    
    I tried updating/installing glibc, which didn't work.

    Remove kernel (line exclude) in the yum.conf

    this upgrade has been DISASTEROUS. After up2date, I have had to set the cPanel updates to STABLE tree and then to a /scripts/upcp - I believe the problem is CentOS 4.4 installs a new version of Perl which cPanel cannot locate, plus there was heaps of issues with named too.

    I'm trying this on a VPS, I doubt removing the kernel form yum.conf will do any good...

    The problem is that centos 4.4 requires the new kernel version. If you don't want install the new one then you can't upgrade.

    Use yum upgrade instead of up2date -u

    Thanks, that worked! Did you remove glibc* from the exclude line after updating to 4.4 or are you leaving it there?

    You should leave it there.

    It seems /scripts/upcp removes the glibc* entry at the end of the exclude line for some reason.

    Haven't tried adding exclude=glibc* on a seperate line.

    That's naughty - I'd log a bugzilla entry asking that /scripts/checkyum doesn't strip out any exclusions that you've added yourself.

    I popped a "yum upgrade" on our development (read test) Centos 4.3 boxes, and it all went through to 4.4 pretty much seamlessly. I did remove kernel* from the yum excludes before doing it (and have since put it back in), but as far as I can tell, it didnt break anything.

    I have stopped using up2date - it seems to cause more problems than yum does (do they perform dependancy checking in a different way? I generally feel yum is more thorough).

    Just to be clear, the glibc problem described in my opening post is occuring on VPS only, dedicated servers are fine.
