  what's the conventional wisdom on incompatibilities between
different FC yum repositories these days?  i have a fully-updated FC5
system that has only ever been updated from FC updates and FC extras.

  i've read differing advice on whether it's safe to mix and match
livna, ATrpms and rpmforge repos.  what i'm after is to install
various multimedia packages (codecs, mplayer, etc.)

  any good advice?  thanks.
