Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

I think you'll need the x264 packages from livna. I have the freshrpms ones in the repo. If you bugzilla it I can look at what will break if i just switch from freshrpms to livna, or you can just download them from livna now ;)

remove the foreign packages and then reinstall stuff. If it doesn't work, foward to bugzilla so jebba can fix the packages correctly for the BLAG repo.

ok, so looks i finally got avidemux to work in blag 70k (bug was also filed)
what needed to be done was as following in case somebody else needs to have this tool without uninstalling current version of x264 as a lot of other multimedia packages depend on it:

avidemux-2.4-10_preview2.fc7.i386.rpm & x264-0-0.8.20061028.lvn7.i386.rpm

(yes higher version of x264 is likely to already be installed, but you do not need to uninstall it)

unpack both rpm's without installing them (right click in nautilus and to extract here)
for avidemux this creates /usr/bin & /usr/share
for x264 this creates /usr/bin, /usr/lib, /usr/share

copy contents of avidemux's dir's into /usr/local/bin & /usr/local/share respectively.

copy x264's /usr/lib/ into /usr/lib/ (nothing else is needed)

adjust shortcut to point to /usr/local/bin/avidemux2

Note: While it is possible to edit/re encode & etc, playback audio in avidemux is not available, everything else appears to work fine including audio in output files.
