Might I suggest Smart instead? Frankly I can't see how anyone can stand
to use Fedora with yum (or even apt-rpm). Smart is faster, has better
dependency resolution and can often fix the cyclic dependency hell
created by yum or apt-rpm (unlike those two package managers, smart can
intelligently downgrade packages as well).
I've fixed many a FC box that would have normally required an hour of
manually replacing RPM's with a simple "smart fix".
Usually you can just do "yum install smart" after a fresh Fedora
install, but if yum is broken, just install the smart rpm and the smart
config rpms from here:
