Yum query
 
When I run "sudo yum update" I get a small number of errors like
----------------------------------
Error: Package: xine-lib-1.1.19-22.fc14.i686 (@atrpms)
Requires: libfusion-1.4.so.0
Removing: directfb-1.4.11-2.fc14.i686 (@updates)
libfusion-1.4.so.0
Updated By: directfb-1.4.11-3.fc14.i686 (updates)
Not found
Available: directfb-1.4.3-1.fc14.i686 (fedora)
libfusion-1.4.so.0
----------------------------------

I know I can (and do) yum-update by adding --skip-broken .
But I'd be interested to know how I should deal with this error.
Is there documentation covering this kind of question?

If I try "yum remove xine-lib", yum asks to remove 330MB of files,
including a whole raft of KDE applications.

I must have installed xine-lib from atrpms at some time in the distant past;
the repo is not currently enabled, and hasn't been for months if not years.

man yum

Try: yum reinstall xine-lib
or: yum downgrade xine-lib

One of those commands should allow you to get the fedora xine-lib back.

Thanks very much.
The first didn't work, but the second did.
