I wouldn't agree with the priorities above. As I mentioned earlier in this
thread, our standard repos, in addition to the base, are rpmfusion and
epel. Other than *sigh* 386 vs x86_64 issues, we've never had dependency
conflicts. It all just works. elrepo I use *only* for kmod-nvidia and its
dependencies; I don't use rpmforge - I've tried, a few times, and
frequently run into dependency conflicts.
