no wonder you like to run GUI as root...

It may be common practice for you to use --force or --nodeps in your own
package management but it's a whole 'nuther thing to recommend your bad
habits to others who might be less skilled or eager to try to repair a
damaged set of packages.

It was clear that the OP installed rpm's from Axel Thimm's repository
but does not have it configured so it can't update. The choice is left
to OP to either remove the packages he got from the other repository and
replace them with the packages from rpm-fusion or add atrpms and disable
rpm-fusion repos. Either way, he doesn't need to do something as drastic
or potentially as damaging as '--force'
