FWIW I installed the apt-get packages onto an FC3
system. I too got this yum dependency error.

I uninstalled yum using apt-get remove , reasoning if
I lost apt I would just re-install it.

Result: No more yum dependency problems, apt-get still
works fine without needing re-installing.

BTW - can anyone help me out on my 4 or 5 threads I
have running about various problems with mythtvsetup,
mythfrontend and filldatabase? I'm feeling ignored and

Also, even though I don't have a working MythTV setup
I'm happy to persist and share my experiences in the
hope someone can suggest a solution. I will take
sides, without the Jarod and Robert K guides I would
not even have made it THIS far with my install
attempt. So keep all info on-line (with disclaimers)
and update it based on feed-back (such as mine).
