Hi Matthew,

>From http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/ :

There have been issues observed when upgrading Red Hat Linux 7.<x>, 8.0, 9 and Fedora Core 1 systems running Ximian GNOME. 
The issue is caused by version overlap between the official Red Hat Linux RPMs (or the ones from the Fedora Project) and 
the Ximian RPMs. This configuration is not supported. You have several choices in resolving this issue:

1) You may remove Ximian GNOME from your system prior to upgrading to Fedora Core.

2) You may upgrade your system, and then immediately reinstall Ximian GNOME.

3) You may upgrade your system, and then immediately remove all remaining Ximian RPMs, replacing them 
with the corresponding Fedora Core RPMs.

You must resolve the version overlap using one of the above choices. Failure to do so will result in an unstable GNOME configuration.
