I am trying to run "software update" from the System Tools Menu in Fedora 17 using the Cinnamon gui.

During the "install" step I get this error:

Test Transaction Errors: file /usr/lib64/ from install of libdvdcss-1.2.12-1.fc17.remi.x86_64 conflicts with file from package libdvdcss2-1.2.11-6.fc17.x86_64

What is this? How do I continue? I tried to rename (mv ...) the file, still no luck??????

Removing the installed libdvdcss package should get you through the transaction. By the way - it is time to upgrade; Fedora 17 hasn't been getting updates for months, and Fedora 18 will be EOL soon as well.

First run

yum remove libdvdcss-1.2.12-1.fc17.remi.x86_64

and then continue as intended.
