Just about any 3rd party repo CAN break your base install ...

The 3rd party repos that are the best at not doing that are:


Even with these, I would recommend that you install the application
first via yum ... make a note of the packages that get installed ... and
in the repo section of the .repo file for that repo, add a line:

includepkgs=package1 package2

That will allow only those packages to be considered from those
repos ...

Another option is to use the protectbase plugin ...
this is an easier option and it affords good protection too, though not
quite as much protection as the includepkgs= option:


(Look at the general section on "Yum Plugins", then go to the
protectbase link)
