That was it, thanks.

Apparently virtualbox-additions and the x11 package were forced on 
during my post-installation processing.  Is there an rpm or urpmq query 
that will highlight conflicts between installed packages on a system ?  
For example, if I installed dkms-virtualbox and then installed 
dkms-vboxadditions with --force, is there a query which would report 
that these two are in conflict ?

My post-installation processing installs over 1000 additional packages 
to bring a fresh system up to the state of the system it is replacing, 
and --force is necessary to prevent scores of bogus prompts.  It would 
be convenient to be able to detect the remaining conflicts once the dust 
has settled and the installs are finished so that any remaining 
conflicts can be addressed manually.
