[kwlug-disc] RedHat yum dependency handling

There are 2 disabled repos: centosplus and contrib. Contrib is user stuff,
and hence I am wary to use it.

There is another one that I don't think is relevant (c5-media), since it
involves physical media (?)

I tried the command you suggested, with and without centosplus, but still
got the same error:

# yum --enablerepo=base,updates,centosplus install munin-node
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.
