Hmmm.  Okay.  Too bad.  Thanks for the explanation.  However, I did
successfully install gnumeric using yum from an RPM I got from
freshrpms... a fluke, I guess.

But so mplayer isn't available from CentOS?

I was just looking at a way to prioritize repos so that freshrpms is at
the bottom, i.e., so that it's sought only as a last resort:
<http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities>.  But the page
doesn't quite get me all the way.  How do I add an entry for freshrpms
to /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo so I can specify a low priority for it?
