As someone else pointed out, you really need to get Priority working,
before you trash that box. When I installed EPEL, a month or so ago, I
gave it a very low priority, the lowest priority of any of the
Repositories I use. The number of packages being excluded, on my
CentOS 5.2 (32 bit) Desktop increased from approximately 350 to 1560,
when EPEL was added.
