Actually, I saw a note from the developer of NetworkManager earlier in
bugzilla, stating that he is working on rebuilding it against the new
version of and should have that out in the next day or two.

But more importantly, is the first issue... I have never tried
NetworkManager and honestly don't know what it does. This is a new box
that was just built a few days ago and when I tried to do a yum update
I found the conflict. I don't use wireless in this system, but I can't
remove wireless-tools because of the file dependency. But since my
system seems to be running fine without NetworkManager running, I may
just take them both out altogether.
