What distro? VLC is packaged for most, without getting it from any other source.

As far I can see, you have dependencies problem. Maybe you should update your repository first. After that these 3 lines should work.

$> su -
#> rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm
#> yum install vlc


P.S. Do not use sudo! You are a su already ...

Try
# yum update

and see if any errors occur. You should run the above command as a su.
If you got no errors then continue with
# yum upgrade

to upgrade every package in Fedora's repository

now you are finally telling us that you are using fedora 8

Fedora 8 is NO LONGER supported and the rpms have been moved into the archives or the mirrors lolonger are working ( some might be still up and running ,but not all of them)

and using the fedora 10 rpmfusion repo file WILL NOT work on fedora 8

two things you can do

UNINSTALL any fedora 10 rpms that might have been installed on fedora 8 .and use a version of fedora that has NO MORE UPDATES , on SECURITY FIXES , and no new programs to install .Unless you build them from the source code .

or install the current fedora 11
