[CentOS] CentOS Plus PHP5 upgrade.

Hi Folks,

I have some users who have a 64-bit CentOS 4.x install (current),
which was installed with @Everything and then some annoying packages
strategically removed (mrtg, pegasus*, mailman...) and they have
decided they have a need for php5.  

I find on the web this instruction for doing this:


So I try to do this, and I get:

# rpm -e php-domxml
# yum --enablerepo=centosplus upgrade php*
--> Processing Dependency: php = 4.3.9-3.22.9 for package: php-pear
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: php = 4.3.9-3.22.9 is needed by package php-pear

So I try to remove this blocking package:

# rpm -e php-pear
error: Failed dependencies:
        php-pear is needed by (installed) php-4.3.9-3.22.9.x86_64

I try to get cute:

# rpm -e --force php-pear
rpm: only installation, upgrading, rmsource and rmspec may be forced


So I can't be the first person to go down this road.  Can anyone provide a
hint as to how to get out of the hole I've dug for myself?

Thanks for your time.
