None of these repositories contain gtkpod. But I've found plenty of different (or at least variously named) rpms for this package at sourceforge, freshmeat, and other websites. This leads to a question with general implications. So far, "yum update" has worked without a hitch on my system. But the volume of postings that report problems with yum has me concerned about fiddling with something that for me at least isn't broken. If I start adding other repositories, like sourceforge and freshmeat, to my yum configuration do I risk interfering with the normal updating of packages from the Fedora repositories, e.g. by inadvertantly updating to beta versions coming from elsewhere? In short... is it better to update manually for certain packages or to expand the yum configuration and then use yum update for everything? Thanks for the help!
