I hope you don't have all those repos enabled!!! If you do, 
you've answered your own question - you're also opening yourself 
up to huge problems. 
You should start with fedora-core, fedora-extras, and 
fedora-updates enabled. After you've done some due research, you 
have to decide between livna and freshrpms/dries - don't enable 
both. Development repos should not be enabled except for very 
specific, well researched, reasons - they are the leading edge 
of new software being developed, and are prone to many problems. 
Others will chime in, I'm sure.
