i don't agree with your diagnosis.  in the first place, i'm using the
original yum.conf file as it was installed, so i haven't "crippled" it in
any way.  and, as it was installed, the only uncommented channel was the
one for development.

regarding the other (originally) commented channels, they're not even
valid -- they refer to non-existent 
http://fedora.redhat.com/{updates,releases} URLs.  more to the point,
since i did an *everything* install, technically, i shouldn't even *need*
a base channel, should i?  isn't the base channel, by definition, the 
contents of the original release?  if i installed everything, then, by 
definition, don't i already have everything from the base channel?

which, by the way, i verified by noting that, yes, i do have gimp-1.2.5-1
on this FC2-test1 box.  so, if my "yum update" is failing due to lack
of libs, and these libs are part of an *already-installed* package, then
someone or something is definitely confused.  i don't think yum should be
complaining about a lack of dependencies when those dependencies are
part of a package that is already installed on my system.
