Hi guys!

I've been trying to update my computer and failed. I followed this link: . It seemed fine and I executed the commands given.

$ rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-21-$(uname -i)
$ yum update yum; yum clean all; sudo yum --releasever=21 distro-sync
That resulted in this:
Error: Package: xorg-x11-drv-vmware-13.0.2-20.intel20143.x86_64 (@intellinuxgraphics/20)
           Requires: xserver-abi(videodrv-14) >= 1
           Removing: xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.14.5-20.intel20141.x86_64 (@intellinuxgraphics/20)
               xserver-abi(videodrv-14) = 1
           Updated By: xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.16.3-2.fc21.x86_64 (updates)
              ~xserver-abi(videodrv-18) = 0
Error: Package: intel-linux-graphics-installer-1.0.7-20.intel20143.x86_64 (@intellinuxgraphics/20)
           Removing: PackageKit-glib-0.8.17-1.fc20.x86_64 (@updates/20)
           Updated By: PackageKit-glib-1.0.4-1.fc21.x86_64 (updates)

I can interpret that something from my intel repo conflicted with the updates repo, but nothing more. I am unsure of what to do. Any ideas?

Well, probably the same error will pop up, I'm not sure, but why don't you use FedUp?

I ended up doing that after @davidva said.

I had the same problem (from the beta version); The Intel repository isn't update your controllers; also your repository to f21 because no exist; You need disable the "intellinuxgraphics" repository, remove this xorg-x11-drv-vmware, xorg-x11-server-Xorg; and install again xorg-x11-server-Xorg from Oficial Fedora repositories...



rpm -e --nodeps xorg-x11-drv-vmware
rpm -e --nodeps xorg-x11-server-Xorg

yum -y install xorg-x11-server-Xorg xorg-x11-drv-vmware

Ok thanks I got it to work... Since I have upgraded to f21, my computer boots really slowly. Is it because of the graphics drivers?

I don't know , may be several factors. I recommend making a


dnf distro-sync
