Comment 4 An. N 2007-01-25 15:12:03 UTC
Seems that someone botched the description for one of the packages in the
database (it's near digicam). Where it should've said "optional" it says "optinoal".

Modifying 2 lines of code in /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/
solved my problem (it's a quick and dirty hack, nevertheless).

I guess we need to wait until they correct the typo in the repos.
