Technology Errors

file /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/psvn.el from install of subversion-1.5.5-0.1.el5.rf conflicts with file

When upgrading Subversion on CentOS you may run into a conflict issue under certain circumstances. I noticed this issue when installing git via yum which required an upgrade of subversion. The installation of git failed because of a “Transaction Check Error” that was caused by the upgrade of subversion. The special circumstances included a 64-Bit install of CentOS and the rpmforge yum repo being installed.

To resolve this issue simply remove the 32-Bit version of subversion and then proceed. The process of getting this error and actually completing a successful upgrade of subversion is detailed below.
