kmod-fglrx issues

Recently ran through the upgrade process of Fedora 10-11. Preupgrade went smoothly but no upgrade, so had a look at grub.conf and discovered I had to select the upgrade option there during boot. Duly done and complete, kind of.

A $yum update gives me a bunch of dependency issues, here are a couple....

Error: Missing Dependency: libnetfilter_conntrack.so.1 is needed by package iptstate-2.2.1-5.fc11.i586 (installed)
Error: Missing Dependency: libxcb-keysyms.so.0 is needed by package vlc-core-1.0.0-0.11rc3.fc11.i586 (installed)
Error: Missing Dependency: kernel-uname-r = 2.6.27.38-170.2.113.fc10.i686 is needed by package kmod-fglrx-2.6.27.38-170.2.113.fc10.i686-9.3-1.fc10.15.i686 (rpmfusion-nonfree-updates)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Straight away I can see a package is from fc10, so not a big suprise that causes issues. Turns out kmod-fglrx-2.6.27.38-170.2.113.fc10.i686-9.3-1.fc10.15.i686 is from the ATI proprietry drivers I installed, so....

...now at least I only have fc11 packages whining at me....

The gstreamer and VLC packages are packages I want to keep for my video/mp3 collections so I need to work out why these are failing. Clearly (?) they have missing dependacies, but I need to know where to get those from and equally why can I not get them from the repos I have enabled? Dropped from Fedora 11 possibly? In which case I need to find out what replaces them in 11.
