Hey guys,

It seems like the smbios packages from dell-community are conflicting
with the same packages in EPEL. Does anybody know what the recommended
way to resolve this?

Seems like there are 2 choices, use --disablerepo and go with either
EPEL or dell-community.

epel - smbios-utils-python.2.2.16-2.1.el5
dell-community - smbios-utils-python.2.2.21-3.2.el5

Might not matter too much but wanted to see if you guys have seen a
similar problem.

Thanks!

 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.
