If I install yum on a VE, and use yum instead of vzyum, will this cause corruption or problems?

I have run into a few package issues using vzyum, but they all appear to be solved by using the local VE yum.

For example "Xvfb could not open default font 'fixed'" ( was solved only by using the local yum.

Another example I ran into is installing OpenOffice for the contributed centos-5 template, which I received the following error when using vzyum, but not yum.
"Error: Unable to satisfy dependencies. Error: Package needs hsqldb >= 1.80.1, this is not available."

My preference would be to just use the local yum, as that is what I am most familiar with, and appears to work most frequently. Will this cause corruption to my VE?

Should not.

vzyum was designed to provide the ability to install a package to the VE with automatic dependencies resolution _without_ the obligation to install local yum in every VE.
Well, yes, time flies and sometimes native yum installed inside a VE works better than vzyum...

In any case using native yum inside a VE should not cause any problems.


If your problem is solved - please, report it!
It's even more important than reporting the problem itself...
