I tried the same thing, with no success at all I ended up installing the extra
packages with rpm and telling it to ignore the deps and force the
installation. every time I used yum to install anything it would fail and
give me the same anal messages so I just quit using it at all. just download
the packages and install them with rpm or kpackage, and it will save you some
time and frustration.
