I just booted a fresh Fedora 25 (server, ppc64le) and attempted to install vim (I do not like vi) and had the following error:
Error: Transaction check error: file /usr/share/man/man1/vim.1.gz from install of vim-common-2:8.0.133-2.fc25.ppc64le conflicts with file from package vim-minimal-2:7.4.1989-2.fc25.ppc64le
Cool, let’s remove vim-minimal:
$ sudo dnf remove vim-minimal
If you see what I saw, this will trigger the uninstall of a whole lot of packages, including
sudo.Saying it will remove
sudo can scare the bejesus out of many people, but this will not be a problem if you are logged as root. (
sudo -s / sudo -su).
$ sudo -su
Now you can bravely go on: remove
vim-minimal and then install vim-enhanced. You should be all good.
