It was a long hard slog, but yumex managed to get most of the packages 
installed.  The few that were left failed because I couldn't get the key for 
rpmfusion non-free updates.   I even tried running the installer, but it told 
me that it had failed to install the key.  In the end I installed the packages 
with --nogpgcheck - obviously not a good solution.

I've managed to pull updates from the direct address of one of the mirrors, so 
this isn't urgent.  What's worse is that I still can't get to the normal 
fedora repo.  Can you give me an equivalent version for that?

If I'm right, though, and it's $releasever that isn't being passed, it will 
still fail.   There must be some way to test what it believes $releasever to 
be?  How do you print the contents of  a variable like that?
