    This is the typical progression; Axel creates packages that become
incompatible with everyone else, but you don't see it until you GET
something from somewhere else.  Using his packages alone is just fine.

    Someone complains.

    Axel claims there's nothing wrong with his setup.

    2-3 people come outta the woods with detailed examples of what's
wrong.

    He seems to get quiet, but doesn't change anything.

    Peace again resumes.

    I spent many nights hacking on the problem, and the result to me was
to just not use his packages.  Since that time, I've not had any such
problems, even with the supposedly-ill yum, and all is fine.

    People that I see as incredibly gifted at understanding RPM have
told him specific details of the problem, and they've not been mean
about it....and he could fix these priority things, but this is the way
he likes it.  I'm almost to the point of thinking he actually _likes_
being the part of the world that's being talked about.  Axel Thimm is
just one of his...names?  Personalities?  I don't really want to know
why he uses three different names- I just walked away from the whole
mess.  Which is why you saw me illuminate the problem and then just clam
up.  Otherwise the cycle begins again.

    If you're having trouble with yum on that machine, just remove those
packages with --nodeps then replace them from another repo.  I can
source you a very sucessful set of repos; I don't like anything beta or
'almost ready' but I do like things newer than directly from Fedora;
life's too short to spend it all at the terminal, ya know?

    Hey- I've got a backup copy of those files; I'll just include them,
here.  Take a peek at'em; make sure you agree with their philosophy
before you 'yum update' and let me know how it goes for ya.

    Enjoy!
