Return to my original reply. ;-) Yes, Livna's premature release of the xine-lib-extras-nonfree upgrade had broken the dependencies first while Fedora's corresponding xine-lib upgrade was still sitting in Updates-Testing. An accident in coordinating the release time for *both* updates. The package maintainers behind the xine-lib* packages are not stupid. Think twice! It's just that coordinating updates in the new merged Core+Extras universe requires adaptations. An early message in this thread suggested filing a bug report at Livna. And that's where I disagreed in this particular case, because Fedora's package was just waiting for release.
