Re: That ole Livna Problem/That ole VLC Problem

I think this is the main difference indeed: most of the additional
Debian repositories only offer a single program or a set of related
programs. Whereas if you configure livna for e.g. kernel modules, you
get access to a lot of multimedia applications too, which may interfere
with applications from e.g. freshrpms.

It is possible to limit the packages yum uses from a specific repo. From "man yum.conf":

exclude
    Same as the [main] exclude option but only for this  repository.
    Substitution variables, described below, are honored here.

includepkgs
    Inverse  of  exclude. This is a list of packages you want to use
    from a repository. If this option lists only  one  package  then
    that  is  all yum will ever see from the repository. Defaults to
    an empty list.  Substitution  variables,  described  below,  are
    honored here.
