Are all those repos enabled? If yes, you for sure will run into
problems. This list has a history of examples.

"Standard" in which way?

You already found the right wiki page

http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories

which explicitly says:

"It may not mix well with other 3rd party repos. So, make SURE you are
using the Priorities yum plugin if you are using EPEL ... especially if
you mix its packages with those from other 3rd party repos."

Be selective with the repositories you use. Make use of priorities and
protectbase yum plugins. Using ATrpms, EPEL, livna and rpmforge
alltogether, you will see lots of conflicts.

rpm -qa --qf '%{NAME}\t\t\t\t %{VENDOR}\n' | sort -k4

can help you to see from which source you already installed which package.
