Library Conflict Resolution

I ran into my first rpm library conflict and I am not sure how best to resolve it. I installed mplayer in SuSE 9.0 Pro and it seems to work great. To install the mplayer rpm I first had to install a number of support libraries--no problem with that. Now I want to install a different piece of software and it requires that I install another library which conflicts with the one used by mplayer. YaST gives me the following message:

libogg 1.0-192 Conflict
Required by:
libogg-devel requires libogg=1.0-
Conflicts with:
libtheora requires libogg >=1.1-
Conflict Resolution Choices:
A. Do Not Set libogg to Protected
B. Remove All 3 Conflicting Packages:
Delete libtheora
Delete mplayer
Do Not Install libogg-devel
C. Ignore Conflict and Risk System Inconsistencies

Is it safe to pick Choice "C" and Ignore Conflict? How do you resolve something like this. Isn't SuSE smart enough to know where it should use the old libogg and where it should use the new one? Thanks for your advise.

Hopefull the conflict could be resolved by simply not installing (or if installed, removing) libogg-devel.
