This is always the problem with livna: they put some interesting things
but "old fashionned": their packages depends on older libraries than
those you have already installed and when you try to install something
it turns into a nightmare... so I did not go beyond this sequence:

1st act:

yum -d 4 --enablerepo=livna install vlc

Transaction Check Error:   package aalib-1.4.0-5.fc6.rf (which is newer
than aalib-1.4.0-0.11.rc5.fc6) is already installed

2nd act:

rpm -e aalib-1.4.0-5.fc6.rf

erreur: Dépendances requises:
	libaa.so.1 est nécessaire pour (déjà installé) xine-0.99.4-8.fc6.rf.i386
	libaa.so.1 est nécessaire pour (déjà installé)

translation: aalib in its newer version version is necessary to xine....

Shall I do rpm -e xine ? Of course not! Because I will find some other
dependencies and I will have to remove a lot of packages....

Ther are a lot of problems like this; to share libraries between many
packages is a very good thing and this is a good way *but* sometimes the
way it is done is awfull because the "new" version of some library is
not so new for the package you want to install and the installation
could be done in spite of the version number of the package which
installed these libraries...

When you know a lot about the package you want to install, you can go
straight and use some strong arguments like "nodeps" or "force" but when
you don't know much.... you give up.

I give up untill the compatibility between what I have installed and
what I want to install become better....

Thanks anyway.
