The responses given last time are still valid. Be
aware though that yum has now some very nifty features
such as yumex/plugins. On my testbed machine i have
about 280 packages protected from 3rd party repos that
want to overwrite the packages in base. 

If i was using apt4rpm it would swallow all those
packages, so you might wanna check out those plugins.

FWIW apt4rpm has long been without development upsteam
since the company that developed it was bought by
Mandriva and dooes not intend to develop it. 

Improve the mailing list by performing a simple search 
before posting and reading the FAQ/etiquette. Protect the
integrity of your installation with the yum plugins.
