We have had some issues with the apt that is currently in the Extras
repository properly resolving some dependencies in CentOS.

http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=1416

http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=1502

There are new apt and synaptic packages currently in the CentOS-Testing
repository that correct these problems.  The new version of apt also can
use repomd repositories ... and the next version of CentOS-Release will
contain a sources.list file that uses repomd and not rpm type repos for
apt.

The new RPMS are:
apt-0.5.15lorg3.2-1.c4.i386.rpm
apt-devel-0.5.15lorg3.2-1.c4.i386.rpm
synaptic-0.57.2-3.c4.i386.rpm

Available here:

Thanks,
Johnny Hughes
