When trying yum with ATrpms, I find that dependencies get not resolved and this makes yum almost unusable.

Is there a fix ?

Don't take this wrong, but yeah.

   rpm -ve --nodeps `rpm -vq | grep AT` (remove all "AT" rpms)
   yum --disablerepo atrpms update  (update)

There's been many an argument over what is, and is not needed to fix
that repo,

You won't blame the food if the spoon is broken, or will you? ;)

The packages are fine, yum is having some trouble


At least some of the bugs are said to be fixed by the latest released
yum. You can also try apt/up2date and if you are willing to use a very
promising resolver in beta stadium go smart! :)

and I've been right where you are...which is why I just don't use it
anymore. Google the wars and rumors of wars...but don't bother.

You mean the wars against bugs? ;)

The "AT" there might be lower case, instead...you get the idea.

Hmm... I'm using apt-get and I've had the same troubles with the .at-packages
smartpm did solve it - to a certain extent - but right now I'm downgrading from .at-packages to packages more easy-going on my system.
It may be the spoon which is the problem, but if all spoons are broken,the soup may be too strongly flavoured :P (sorry for that one)
