yum runs, it's just telling you that there are unresolved dependencies.
First, I think I'd clean all; then, it may be that you need to add another
repository. Finally, you might have to uninstall some stuff, then try to
reinstall - I'd do the topmost level (the audio player, say), and let it
decide what all it needed....
