comment Error: cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: rpmfusion-free
Try doing yum update --disablerepo=rpmfusion first, it might be some glitch in older installed packages. As @goldilocks says, check the configuration of the repository, it might me wrong. Perhaps reinstall the package providing it.

comment `[java] <defunct>` with defunct children -> Any way to collect them?
At least in Linux, threads are just kernel tasks, just like regular one-thread processes. Sure, there might be a glitch in handling them, but it is extremely unlikely. Zombies are the result of parents not handling the exit of their children; haven't ever seen a different reason.

comment Why do I get dropped into a GRUB rescue console?
Something either screwed up your grub.conf or perhaps moved the disks around (my BIOS decided to switch C and D...)
