Seems like the Dropbox-RPM you installed added a repository, which isn't really working the way it is supposed to.

I feel a little guilty for recommending you the Fedora-Package earlier, as of course Fedora and RedHat-Linux are not entirely the same and therefore might depend on different stuff etc. :-(

If the RPM isn't working in your environment, you might just remove it and try the installation from the source-package. Follow the instructions closely, as failure might break other parts of your installation. And check the provided documentation for any uninstall-routines in advance, in case this does not work as well.
