There's also an obsoletes option in yum.conf. That option you are talking 
about is for priorities.conf and would stop that rpmforge package 
obsoleting and replacing the base package?
I just checked with my default settings (without a check_obsoletes option 
in priorities.conf, but with check_obsoletes=1 in yum.conf) and the update 
output showed it would be going to update the base package. Unfortunately, 
I hit accidently y the second time I ran it ;-)
So, with check_obsoletes = 1 I assume it wouldn't have done that?
