Running Scientific Linux 6.1 (x86_64). I've added the rpmforge repository so that I can do a yum install synergy.

Code:
---> Package synergy.x86_64 0:1.3.6-1.el6.rf will be installed
--> Finished Dependency Resolution

Dependencies Resolved

====================================================================================================================================
 Package                      Arch                        Version                               Repository                     Size
====================================================================================================================================
Installing:
 synergy                      x86_64                      1.3.6-1.el6.rf                        rpmforge                      1.0 M

Transaction Summary
====================================================================================================================================
Install       1 Package(s)


However, the moment installation finishes, I can check for updates, and get this:

Code:
Running Transaction
  Installing : synergy-1.3.6-1.el6.rf.x86_64                                                                                    1/1

Installed:
  synergy.x86_64 0:1.3.6-1.el6.rf

     replacing  synergy.x86_64 1.3.6-1.el6.rf

So yum now wants to obsolete my synergy installation and replace it with a synergy-plus one. Fine by me... so I'll say to go ahead and do the update:

Code:
Installed:
  synergy-plus.x86_64 0:1.3.4-1.el6.rf                                                                                             

Replaced:
  synergy.x86_64 0:1.3.6-1.el6.rf                                                                                                   

Complete!
[root@dirac yum.repos.d]# yum update
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit

--> Finished Dependency Resolution

====================================================================================================================================
 Package                      Arch                        Version                               Repository                     Size

Installing:
 synergy                      x86_64                      1.3.6-1.el6.rf                        rpmforge                      1.0 M
     replacing  synergy-plus.x86_64 1.3.4-1.el6.rf

Transaction Summary
====================================================================================================================================

And at this point, I'm now in an infinite loop of recursion! If synergy-plus is installed, yum thinks updating to synergy 1.3.6 would be a good idea. If synergy 1.3.6 is installed, it thinks replacing it with synergy-plus 1.3.4 would be useful. Net result is that I am constantly being advised in the system tray area that updates are available, and I am constantly going to bounce between these two programs... and all from the one repository.

Anyone have any suggestions about how to break out of this loop, short of uninstalling synergy (or its plus cousin) altogether??
