I'm curious.  Have you tried http://www.rpmfusion.org/Configuration for
Fedora 11?

You were lucky to get that install completed.  There was such a shortage
of memory that a post-installation script could not be started.  Either
it retried or continued regardless.

You can reduce the chances of this happening by:

1.  reducing memory usage, by closing as many activities or applications
as possible, or turning off the GUI for the duration of the yum command,

2.  adding temporary swap space, on an SD card or USB stick.
