libmtp-hal can die, HAL is gone as of F16.  "repoquery" tells me the
only thing that requires libnih is Upstart, which has also been
replaced.  So you can safely remove these.  Try "rpm -ev libmtp-hal

Do you have wine installed or any other 32-bit applications?  (Wine
installs 32-bit libraries so it can run 32-bit Windows apps.  Skype is
the only other commonly used thing that uses 32-bit libs AFAIK.  "rpm
-qa | grep i686" will indicate all installed 32-bit packages.)

If not, you can also "rpm -ev > mesa-dri-drivers-7.11-1.fc15.i686
llvm-libs-2.8-12.fc15.i686".  If you do need 32-bit libs, try forcing
an update:  "yum install mesa-dri-drivers.i686 mesa-dri-llvmcore.i686
mesa-dri-filesystem.i686 llvm-libs.i686"  If that doesn't work, the
easiest solution might be to uninstall Wine, uninstall those libs, get
everything updated, and install it again.
