The only reason I suggested apt-get, is that he would be effectively starting 
with a clean sheet. I gave him the URL for adding freshrpms 
to /etc/apt/sources.list, so he then could do an apt-get update, which would 
download the package lists for the first time with apt-get, for fedora 
updates, everything, and "only" freshrpms. Livna not entering the equation.

Then an apt-get install vlc  may have printed out some usefull info.

If he does have some problem with Yum, trying with Apt, if Apt worked ok, 
might confirm it.

He doesn't appear to have read what I said though, as now he's trying to get 
apt-get to get vlc from Livna.

I'll post him back on list, and try and find out what he's done.

Nigel.
