You seem to be missing libass.so.3. It should be in a package called something like libass3. Interesting name for a package.

Actually quite easy

# yum install libass

if the "Fedora 10 - i386 - Updates" repo is enabled.
> Menu , System > Add Remove Software > System > "Software Sources
... and tick 'Fedora 10 ... Updates' to enable it.

$ yum repolist
Code:
....-id              ......-name                                 status  
adobe-linux-i386     Adobe Systems Incorporated               	 enabled
fedora               Fedora 10 - i386                         	 enabled
rpmfusion-free       RPM Fusion for Fedora 10 - Free          	 enabled
rpmfusion-free-updat RPM Fusion for Fedora 10 - Free - Update 	 enabled
rpmfusion-nonfree    RPM Fusion for Fedora 10 - Nonfree        	 enabled    
rpmfusion-nonfree-up RPM Fusion for Fedora 10 - Nonfree - Update enabled     
updates              Fedora 10 - i386 - Updates                  enabled
Good luck !
.....
P.S. : Very peculiar : There are 6,500 packages in 'update',
a lot of those are not in the "normal" '10,000 packages' repo.
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...dates/10/i386/
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...6/os/Packages/

1) I can't see, you have a line saying :
"updates______Fedora 10 - i386 - Updates______enabled"

2) $ means : please do the command as user, not root.
Makes it simpler : yum repolist .

3) I don't understand why you can't enable 'update'
in "Add Remove Software", should be very easy.

4) You have the updates link in post # 4, so you also
have the choice to download the package, if you can't
configure the repo's.
.....
.....
/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo
The enabled part is shown ....
Code:
[updates]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - Updates
failovermethod=priority
#baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/updates/$releasever/$basearch/
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-f$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-$basearch
'enabled=1' means enabled, 'enabled=0' means disabled.
The file is attached as fedora-updates.repo.txt
The whole file may be missing on your system ? ?

Solution : Click the file 'fedora-updates.repo.txt'
in post # 7, download it, rename to fedora-updates.repo ,
and copy it to /etc/yum.repos.d/ , ( if it is missing ).

I don't know, what you are doing with "filters",
that may be the issue. ( I never use that function.)

So try without "filters" , please.

Please read post # 7 again :

'enabled=1' means enabled, 'enabled=0' means disabled.
.....
Or change it in 'Add Remove Software"
MENU, System > Add Remove Software > MENU → System > "Software Sources"
... and tick 'Fedora 10 ... Updates' to enable it.

Hello,

I have the same problem ( I'm using fedora 10) , I enabled the repo, but still the same:
yum install vlc
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Resolving Dependencies
--> Running transaction check
---> Package vlc.i386 0:0.9.9-2.fc10 set to be updated
--> Processing Dependency: vlc-core = 0.9.9-2.fc10 for package: vlc-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386
--> Processing Dependency: libvlccore.so.0 for package: vlc-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386
--> Running transaction check
---> Package vlc-core.i386 0:0.9.9-2.fc10 set to be updated
--> Processing Dependency: libass.so.3 for package: vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 from rpmfusion-free-updates has depsolving problems
--> Missing Dependency: libass.so.3 is needed by package vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 (rpmfusion-free-updates)
Error: Missing Dependency: libass.so.3 is needed by package vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 (rpmfusion-free-updates)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest


Another detail maybe is helpfull

locate libass.so
/usr/lib/libass.so.4
/usr/lib/libass.so.4.0.0
