    Can you install it with the rpm command? As root:
    Code:
    rpm -ivh stardict-3.0.1-1.fc8.i386.rpm

    Yeah, this is why they invented package managers.

    What yum command were you originally using to install the rpm? Is stardict available in the default yum repos?

    Code:
    yum search stardict
    You can go out and try and find an espeak rpm, install that and then install stardict but you're likely to have dependency problems with espeak as well.

    Also, what's the output of:

    Code:
    yum repolist

    the output of yum search is :
    stardict-dic-ru.noarch : Russian(ru) dictionaries for StarDict
    stardict-dic-en.noarch : English(en) dictionaries for StarDict
    stardict.i386 : A powerful dictionary platform written in GTK+2
    stardict-dic-ja.noarch : Japanese(ja) dictionaries for StarDict
    stardict-dic-zh_CN.noarch : Simplified Chinese(zh_CN) dictionaries for StarDict
    stardict.i386 : A powerful dictionary platform written in GTK+2
    stardict-dic-zh_TW.noarch : Traditional Chinese(zh_TW) dictionaries for StarDict
    and the output of yum repolist is
    repo id repo name status
    InstallMedia Fedora 8 enabled
    adobe-linux-i386 Adobe Systems Incorporated enabled
    fedora Fedora 8 - i386 enabled
    livna Livna for Fedora Core 8 - i386 - Base enabled
    updates Fedora 8 - i386 - Updates enabled
    so what do you think?
