Openstack libvirt install fails with error

I ran into this a few times with different OpenStack Distros

Installing RDO Red Hat Openstack I got the following error with CentOS 6.4

ERROR : Error during puppet run : err: /Stage[main]/Nova::Compute::Libvirt/Package[libvirt]/ensure: change from absent to present failed: Execution of ‘/usr/bin/yum -d 0 -e 0 -y install libvirt’ returned 1: Error: Package: libvirt-0.10.2-18.el6_4.8.x86_64 (updates)

If you manually run yum -d 0 -e 0 -y install libvirt

yum -d 0 -e 0 -y install libvirt
Error: Package: libvirt-0.10.2-18.el6_4.8.x86_64 (updates)
Available: parted-2.1-19.el6.x86_64 (base)
Installed: parted-2.3-11.fu2012.x86_64 (installed)

Ok so parted-2.3-11.fu2012.x86_64 (installed)

How I got around the issue was on a fresh install CentOS 6.4 before running the OpenStack  install

Verify the version of parted by running

rpm -qa parted

if = parted-2.3-11.fu2012.x86_64 (installed)

Then uninstall parted-2.3-11.fu2012.x86_64 (installed)

Use the following command

rpm -e –nodeps parted

Now you can proceed with your OpenStack install.

Thanks to my Buddy Roddy Rodstein at Mokum Solutions for the Tip!
