Just Some Reassuarnce:
The Livna repo has never given me a problem as far as upgrading packages
goes. What I did find is that the Fedora repo WILL try to update CCRMA
Packages to versions that (in the past) have broken my install (FC5 and 6).
I use synaptic (even on FC7)  because I can "see" whom the package
(updateable) is coming from and decide weather or not to use/update it.
