I was getting this error during yum update--it was attempting to update
mplayer. I uninstalled mplayer so that yum update would finish without error
but I still get the same error now trying to reinstall mplayer. For some
reason it complains about missing libdirectfb-0.9.so.25 but the directfb
package provides this file. What gives?! Thanks, Devin
