Fedora 8 upgrade on Mario

Mario is my main Linux box. I had to uninstall x264 this comes from the fact that I mixed livna and freshrpms. I never intended to do so, but I started with freshrpms back in the day, but nowadays I use livna for my graphics card. That plus freshrpms relative lack of updates compared to livna means that it’s slowly sliding off my computer. The only bad thing is that livna does not carry binaries for Cinelerra. I’ll have to investigate what I should do there. So far, for dependency errors I’ve had to remove:

lalbgl
x264
cinelerra
dvdrip
ffmpeg
ffmpeg-libpostproc
gstreamer-bad
k3b-extras-nonfree
kino
libquicktime
mencoder
mjpegtools
mplayer
mplayer-skins
mplayerplug-in
ogmrip
subtitleripper
transcode
vlc

Most of these I plan to reinstall afterwards. Further reporting if there are most steps that need to be taken and/or when I get to a Fedora 8 desktop.
