Would this 'protect' tag solution also arise the same problem than described
Also, does someone know where I could find a list of Dag's repo packages
that are already present in the CentOS officials ?
If there are only a few ones there, then it might be ok to just add them to
the repos list as I am doing now already.
Is a downgrade from one higher version package to a current CentOS package
something doable? I am a bit affraid to do something like that and don't
know how I would do it (it might influence other packages as well..)
