No, no, no. Read the other thread more carefully. You get many things
wrong and make up your own false theories. It's tiresome. freshrpms
and livna do conflict. I've told you in the other thread how they
conflict. And during a yum update, any new packages which are pulled
in are called "updates", too. That's has nothing to do with livna.


http://ayo.ie.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/8/i386/freshrpms/RPMS/vlc-0.8.6d-1.fc8.i386.rpm:
[Errno -1] Package does not match intended download

  It says it doesn't have the right vlc number or whatever.

No, it means the download ended with a checksum that doesn't match the
metadata. You may need to clean your yum cache.


    I have cleaned my dam yum 3 times today! I have not done so just
before trying freshrpms however so will try that next. The vlc at
freshrpms is much older than the one at livna. One more try today.

The vlc at freshrpms may be older, but some of its dependencies at
freshrpms are seen as _newer_ by RPM due to how RPM version comparison
works. E.g. the "0.0.0 greater than 0" case mentioned before. That's
why you run into dependency problems. It is not enough to just disable
a repo in your yum config files, you also need to erase packages
installed from that repo.

And explicit execution of "yum --enablerepo=..." for cherry-picking
packages is only for people who know what they are doing.

That leaves me out it seems :-)
