Update reports conflicts between packages
CentOS 6 on 64 bit platform
I installed ntfs-3g from RPMforge because I needed ntfs file system support. More recently, I wanted to install Gparted because I had used it on a live CD and liked it better then the utility installed in CentOS. I installed Gparted from the EPEL repository being careful to pick the 64 bit version. Now when I run update it reports that 'Local file conflicts between packages' with the message 'Two packages provide the same file. This is usually due to mixing packages from different software sources.' Under details it states:
Test Transaction Errors: file /sbin/mkfs.ntfs from install of ntfsprogs-2:2011.4.12-5.el6.x86_64 conflicts with file from package ntfsprogs-1.13.1-1.el6.rf.i686
file /usr/share/man/man8/ntfscp.8.gz from install of ntfsprogs-2.2011.4.12.-5.el...
I am still a little unclear as to how to set priorities in the repositories and how to turn one repository on or off. I afraid to uninstall one or the other for fear it will remove stuff the other depends on. Where is the file which tells YUM which repositories to use and set priorities?
