that "heres my yum repos file" is of no use
the error says it all
"708 packages excluded due to repository priority protections"
you have at least one incompatible reop installed
please post the output of
yum repolist all
with "rpmforge" installed i take it that "yum-pretectbase" is installed and yum-priorities" is also installed and rpforge was set to 98 or less
at some point YOU forced the install of something from an incompatible repo
and i take it YOU HAVE ran the suggested fix ?
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
and you DO have "yum-utilites" installed so that you can run them
it is very very VERY VERY easy to mess up RHEL/CentOS/SL with the third party repos
most are NOT compatible , hence all the warnings .
