Hi Craig. I just suggested enabling the freshrpms repo again ( that's on Karls 
pulseaudio thread) and trying an install of VLC, especially as x264 on my F8 
with freshrpms enabled is showing as being maintained by Matthias Saou 
(freshrpms), and VLC is working fine.

The problem is that 3rd party repo's don't work well together. The intention 
of the repo maintainers is that there should be consistency of the package 
versions available, but this doesn't seem to work out in reality, resulting 
in conflicts.

Karls obviously experiencing this. I thought he'd got his VLC from Livna, but 
maybe not due to the problems he's having.

Just my 2ยข worth.

Nigel.
