Mixing repositories can get interesting and is sort of political too.
The k12ltsp-release package provides the livna repo, as does the
fedorafaq RPM.

JPK said he disables livna in favor of freshrpms. I do the opposite. I
find that Livna integrates well with Fedora Extras and supplies the DVD
CSS bits too. I'd set all repos except core and extras to enabled=0 and
just add back the ones you need to make things work.

What didn't work with Acrobat Reader? The SELinux update shouldn't be
necessary, since Eric adds in all available Fedora updates when he rolls
a new release. RC2 should already have these. FWIW, there's not much
that I need to do with PDFs that Document Viewer (née Evince) doesn't
handle these days.
