Guys,

I working to update my kernel and I have run into the following
conflict:

# rpm -ivh ../noarch/kernel-source-2.6.31.12-2.1.noarch.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
file /etc/rpm/macros.kernel-source from install of
kernel-source-2.6.31.12-2.1 conflicts with file from package
kernel-source-2.6.25.20-0.7
file /usr/lib/rpm/kernel-module-subpackage from install of
kernel-source-2.6.31.12-2.1 conflicts with file from package
kernel-source-2.6.25.20-0.7

The files are text files, and I'm almost willing to bet they would be
identical, but don't know, so I'm concerned enough to beg for help before I do
something dumb like forcing this into place.

The kernel is from:

http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/repositories/home:/hennichodernich:/backport-stable-kernel/openSUSE_11.0/

and I was interesting in checking it out. On all prior kernel installs where I
have had multiple kernels installed (with rpm -ivh), I've never received this
error before ... and I regularly have 2-3 different kernel packages installed. I
guess the problem is most likely a packaging problem, but don't know enough
about suse kernel packaging to be sure.

So what say the kernel experts, Can I safely ignore the conflict and
overwrite
the above files safely?
