Installing xine-lib-moles seems to have done the trick.  Thanks.

Well, if I hear that they've straighteded out the power 
management/hibernate issued for F7, I would live to load that at work, 
on my laptop, and on my server.  Not holding breath.

Well, what I heard (before F7 actually came out) that there wansn't 
going to BE a F7 tree on livna, atrpms, freshrpms, etc, or at least they 
would be exceedingly small, with almost everything moved to a central 
repository.  Then they can do sane dependency and conflict resolution.

I guess I heard wrong then.  I know "core" and "extras" are combined, 
but that was hardly ever a problem.
