Yum failed dependencies?

I tried to installed a web development tool called nvu using yum, but it displayed failed dependencies. Why is this? I thought yum will resolve all the dependencies cause before this, I installed any application using yum and it resolved all the dependencies for that software package.

[root@localhost jo]# yum install nvu*

I think that the problem is with your yum config for the Dries repository: the package name suggests that it is for RHEL 4, rather than Fedora, and I don't think that the xorg-x11-deprecated-libs that it requires is a Fedora Core package.

I've tried to install it manually by searching the xorg-x11-deprecated-libs at and found out that it is a FC4 package. Neeway I've succesfully installed it manually.
