Removing duplicate i386 packages on a x86_64 system after a Pre-Upgrade from FC8-FC10

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I recently upgraded my x86_64 system from FC8 to FC10 using Pre-Upgrade. (related blog link) It appears that the upgrade process installed a steaming pile of i386 packages that are duplicates of existing x86_64 packages. I now get update errors because of this package clash. I have searched the fora and the most progress I've been able to make so far is: I apparently had 8 unfinished yum transactions so I did yum-complete-transaction 8 times and have no more incomplete transactions. The output of package-cleanup --dupes is not very helpful: Code: [tim@servy ~]$ sudo package-cleanup --dupes Setting up yum Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit :confused: Yet I still get transaction errors when I run updates via synaptic. It checks dependencies and downloads everything and errs when testing changes. This is the error it gives at the moment: Code: Test Transaction Errors:  file /etc/gconf/schemas/gweather.schemas from install of libgweather-2.24.2-1.fc10.x86_64 conflicts with file from package gnome-applets-1:2.20.1-1.fc8.i386   file /usr/bin/panel-test-applets from install of gnome-panel-devel-2.24.3-2.fc10.i386 conflicts with file from package gnome-panel-2.20.3-2.fc8.i386   file /etc/gconf/schemas/charpick.schemas from install of gnome-applets-1:2.24.3.1-1.fc10.x86_64 conflicts with file from package gnome-applets-1:2.20.1-1.fc8.i386   file /etc/gconf/schemas/cpufreq-applet.schemas from install of gnome-applets-1:2.24.3.1-1.fc10.x86_64 conflicts with file from package gnome-applets-1:2.20.1-1.fc8.i386   file /etc/gconf/schemas/drivemount.schemas from install of gnome-applets-1:2.24.3.1-1.fc10.x86_64 conflicts with file from package gnome-applets-1:2.20.1-1.fc8.i386   file /etc/gconf/schemas/geyes.schemas from install of gnome-applets-1:2.24.3.1-1.fc10.x86_64 conflicts with file from package gnome-applets-1:2.20.1-1.fc8.i386   file /etc/gconf/schema... Any ideas what is going on, or suggestions for what I might do next to solve the problem? Thanks! T (HowTos)
