    I haven't used apt-get for a few years so I'm unsure if it has an equivalent of aptitude's "hold". I should have mentioned that hold probably would not stop apt-get and Synaptic.

    What is the ffmpeg command that you are using to get this error? I've never encountered this error, but I would like to try to reproduce it. My guess is that there may be a mess of several ffmpeg/x264 installs (or residual files) screwing each other up. Use you package manager to completely remove all installed yasm, x264, and ffmpeg. Now you can either:
    cd ~/yasm
    make distclean
    ./configure, make, checkinstall
    cd ~/x264
    make distclean
    git pull
    ./configure, make, checkinstall
    sudo ldconfig
    cd ~/ffmpeg
    make distclean
    svn update
    ./configure, etc
    or delete the yasm, ffmpeg and x264 directories and start the tutorial over.
