=>Possibly. It tells me that your mplayer package verifies fine, which

=>aalib-libs-1.4.0-0.16.rc5.fc10.i386

=>Right?

Bingo. A yum update aalib-libs fixed the problem. 

Now I have a couple of questions:

*) "I see that it depends on libgpm.so.2 via libaa.so.1" What did you mean 
by that? How did you know that there was a dependancy on libgpm 
because of libaa-libs?

*) Is it an installation bug that mplayer was incorrectly updated when I 
went from F9 to F10? Should it not have *removed* mplayer instead if 
libaa-libs was not a part of the install dvd?
