Make sure you have the fedora.us repo included in your yum.conf! The 
livna repo shouldn't be used by itself. There is a big red box on the 
livna page that states:


RPM.Livna.org is not a standalone repository.
You must use rpm.livna.org with
the Fedora.us repository"

Further down the page, there is:

"Do not ask for help about missing libaa/libFLAC/liblzo/libdv/... 
dependencies. Configure your apt/yum/up2date to use the corresponding 
stable/testing/unstable repositories from fedora.us which you use from 
rpm.livna.org and it'll work."

I'm not intending to flame -- but just be sure you have the required 
fedora.us repo also in your yum.conf.

Hope this helps,
