The package names are different, so probably "geoip" (from RPMforge)
obsoletes "GeoIP" from CentOS.

In that case, for priorities to work and exclude the one that
obsoletes the other, you have to set this option in the [main] section
of /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/priorities.conf:


Look for the thread about perl-DBD-mysql vs. perl-DBD-MySQL, it's
probably the same issue.
