for the time being, i'd suggest you also look at the output of 'rpm -qa 
--last' very carefully.

and the rpm --oldpackage option might come in handy - you should not 
need to uninstall anything, just move the pkgs to be installed into a 
new directory and then use something like 'rpm --oldpackage -uvh *.rpm'

also, did you think about taking this issue up with the repository 
maintainer ? These look like pkgs from atrpms - and Axel has been fairly 
responsive recently to issues such as this.
