Very mysterious.

Few things to try:
  1) Add "--obsoletes" command line flag to yum
  2) Add "exclude=net-snmp" to yum.conf
  3) (big hammer) rpm -e --nodeps net-snmp net-snmp-libs; yum install
srvadmin-all; rpm -ivh ./path/to/net-snmp-rpms

The error I get is:
Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
srvadmin-deng-5.1.0-354                  conflicts with net-snmp =

# rpm -qa | grep snmp -i

(custom compile of net-snmp 5.4)

# rpm -q --provides net-snmp-5.4-2
net-snmp = 5.4-2

# rpm -q --provides net-snmp-libs-5.1.2-11.EL4.7

(needed for wireshark)

So, why on earth is up2date/yum saying that net-snmp 5.0.1-6 is a
