I had to manually install some dependencies in my fumbling attempts to get netflix working yesterday with pipelight, and ultimately failed. I uninstalled everything I installed during that process, but when I run yum update now I get this:

Transaction Summary
Install             ( 2 Dependent packages)
Upgrade  1 Package

Total size: 442 k
Is this ok [y/d/N]: y
Downloading packages:
Running transaction check
Running transaction test

Transaction check error:
  file /usr/lib/libmpg123.so.0 from install of libmpg123-1.19.0-1.fc19.i686 conflicts with file from package mpg123-1.18.1-1.fc19.i686

Error Summary

Is there a way to get this out of my life without having to do anything drastic?

The easiest way to fix your problem is to manually install the package (which yum has downloaded into /var/cache/yum/... somewhere) using rpm -Uvh --replacefiles

However you likely have some more "fumbling attempts" ;-) to clean up. Try doing rpm -qa --last | more to see recent activity.

You also should check for duplicated installations.
