Thank you so much for your effort :) 

Doing yum update texlive\* resulted in dep. problems with (x)dvipdfmx,
dvipng (requires libkpathsea.so.4) -- you're probably missing obsoletes
in texlive-dvipdfmx and texlive-dvipng. After I removed them (along with
xetex, which I tried once, but went back to "just" tex), the update
progressed smoothly, haven't tried runtime yet (though, seeing that your
repo has 5000+ packages and the yum updated installed/updated only 85, I
suspect I'll be missing some fonts I use).
