Pirut is no longer a part of Fedora from Fedora 9 onwards. It has been replaced
by PackageKit, and offline package management support is in the works as part of
this year's Google Summer of Code. So very soon it will also replace Opyum.

For the moment, its not possible to use Opyum on Fedora 9 since it had a massive
dependency on Pirut's classes. Yum still allows you to install Opyum because
PackageKit has "Provides: pirut", which is true from a functionality standpoint,
but not from the way Opyum looks at it.

The situation is unfortunate, but we hope to have offline capabilities in
PackageKit sometime soon, and Opyum has been marked as dead in Rawhide.
