installing xmms-mp3 fails due to dependency issues

I have followed the ESR howto from
enable a few things that stupid US legislation crippled away from
But even after following the tutorial point by point I get this:
# yum install xmms-mp3
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 1 Dag Wieers' repository
Server: Macromedia flash-plugin site
Server: Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
Server: Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (testing)
Server: Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (unstable)
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Released Updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
....identical dependency loop exceeded
package xmms-mp3 needs xmms = 1.2.7 (not provided)
Trying up2date results in the same error.
I then checked which version I have installed:
# xmms --version
This sucks. I thought yum and up2date were supposed to solve
dependencies themselves? And why isn't version 1.2.8 sufficient to
install xmms-mp3? I have done a normal installation of Core 1 and
updated the packages via yum, using mirror servers from the list Fedora
provides. I then followed the howto.
Has anyone encountered the same problem? Please help me solve this.
These whole patent issues are SO ridiculous. Maybe it's better to base
Fedora in a non-US country right away to avoid this mess. Sorry, but I
have no tolerance for this kind of "intellectual property" shit.
