I'm not sure what you mean by "broken" - for me, the original problem (trying to
pull in 32-bit packages, and then failing due to conflicts) is gone now in F16
and never appeared in Rawhide. I'm using the master mirror
( Below are the packages I currently can't update in
Rawhide, and my gnome-shell version. Running "yum update --skip-broken" works
without excluding anything.
