Question Which repository to choose for software installation on Centos 6.2 64bit?

Hello all,

I have two questions. 1- How can I know if GD is complied with PHP Build and is set to YES? I have installed Linux Centos 6.2 64bit fresh install. I have installed php, php-mysql, php-gd, php-xml, mysql, mysql-server, httpd and httpd-devel. 2- Now I want to install some software on it and I don't know which repository would be the best to accomplish this task. The software I want to install are;

flvtool2, mplayer, mencoder, libogg, libvorbis, lame MP3 encoder, ffmpeg, ffmpeg-php, flash-plugin and gstreamer. I have tried before with epel and rampforge and some installations are successful but not for all of them. I had to wipe out the Linux OS and reinstall it fresh. For example one error message I got was;

Error: Package: gstreamer-plugins-bad-0.10.19-3.el6.rf.x86_64 (rpmforge)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest. I would like to be able to install all of them successfully with the best repository that would allow a successful installation of all of them without any errors. How can I solve this problem? Thank you.

Have you followed the advice on the CentOS site about installing yum-priorities and setting the priority of each repository? You might be getting conflict between repositories.
