[mythtv-users] Ongoing Fedora YUM Dependency Problems

This email is simply a rant... but I need to express my frustration, so I'm
begging forgiveness in advance.
I've been using MythTV for over a year now. I originally tried to make it
work with SuSE (wasted lots of time there), until I found Jarod Wilson's
wonderful HOW-TO for installing Myth on Fedora Core 4. (Thank you, Jarod!)
I switched to Fedora and got MythTV installed and working on 2 machines.
But over the year, I continually experienced problems when updating or
upgrading via yum. Over and over again, yum refused to do anything because
of dependency problems. Each time, I had to invest time and effort to work
around the problem.
When I was confronted with the problem again this week, I decided to upgrade
to Fedora Core 5. So I downloaded the DVD ISO, verified the DVD was good
and upgraded the master backend. After the upgrade, the system couldn't
launch the X server. So I tried to run "yum upgrade". It refused due to a
conflict over the boot image.
So I copied all my recordings to another box and dumped a backup of
mythconverg - and did a clean install of Fedora Core 5. Immediately after
first boot, I tried "yum upgrade". Same problem.
I'm giving up on Fedora. Hello Ubuntu...
