Yes!I saw that. It seems that now vlc needs some non-free dependencies when installing.
It is impossible to install it in gdnewhat without some hacking.
PS: found why I had problems when reading DVDs on gdnewhat (vlc was installed). It is because kernel-libre-firmware and perf-libre are not on their repo. It seems they forgot to sync with the noarch packages from linux-libre (FSFLA) repo. I will send Shintaro a mail about this.
