So I uninstall and try updating again: it works! But x264 is no longer installed. So I install x264.i386 - only this time its a livna rpm. It installs, but I check mplayer and only 1 option is installed, so no mencoder which is what I need. If I try to install it it says its still missing the shared object library.

In the list archives, Jan 29th, subject "‎libx264.so.56, where art
thou?" explains in what way livna and freshrpms conflict with regard
to the x264 package.
