And look at using the yum priorities plugin so you can safely mix repos.



I have one question about this:

Which is the "safest" setup for priorities?

base, update and extras: priority=1
ATrpms (which should not replace _any_ base package): priority=10
rpmforge (which could have some base package updated): priority=20
EPEL: priority=30

and so on with other repos...

Does this look reasonable?


that looks OK ... the other affect of this is that ATrpms have
precedence over rpmforge, which has precedence over EPEL, etc.


So, if that is the precedence you want then that is the way to go.

And don't forget to either disable or remove "protect" if you have them
installed/enabled. Look at them as mutually exclusive.
