Well, there's a yum workaround when you have a dependency error. Check here for the SkipBroken plugin: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Drafts/SoftwareManagementGuide/CustomizingYum If the dependency continues for several days, check Bugzilla for posts about it, or put in one yourself.

Many times, the dependency comes from installing software from several different 3rd party repositories and complaints about version errors. So check whether you have a livna/rpmforge glitch and see if reinstalling from one site or the other will fix it.
