I'm beginning to suspect a massive dependency bug in some part of
yum, as I just completed my install of the i386 version and used
pirut rather than yumex to download additional stuff like mplayer
and wound up with the same missing dependencies. What I did to fix
them all was this:

package-cleanup --problems > missing.txt

Edit the missing.txt file to get just the names of the missing
dependencies (one per line), then

yum install `cat missing.txt`

I've got two bugzillas on this now (probably the same problem):


The dependency checking process seems to be pretty busted.
