It looks like something strange is going on with audit-libs.i586 versus 
audit-libs.x86_64. There is a temporary issue with F10 having a more 
recent version of audit-libs than rawhide, but your problems might be 
elsewhere and yum is trying to pull in audit-libs-1.7.12-2.fc11.i586 to 
resolve a dependency problem.

Another big question is how you have managed to update rpm without the 
corresponding version of rpm-libs, which shouldn't be possible unless 
something has gone wrong with yum, or you have done something strange, 
such as trying to upgrade an x86_64 distribution from i586 rawhide.
