I'm trying to install cedega-000133-1.i386 from the downloaded RPM file, but 
the yum backend thinks it can't. Here's the python backtrace:

Traceback (most recent call last):                                                       
  File "/usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py", line 1398, in 
    pkgs = self.yumbase.pkgSack.returnNewestByName(name=po.name)                                                            
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/packageSack.py", line 399, in 
    raise PackageSackError, 'No Package Matching $s' $ ui_pats                                                              
PackageSackError: No Package Matching cedega

My guess is that it tries to search the repositories for a more recent version 
of cedega. Since cedega isn't listed in any repo, it fails. I've attached a 
patch that fixes this.
