Here's a random example:

sudo yum install smb4k
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "changelog" plugin
Loading "kernel-module" plugin
Loading "merge-conf" plugin
Loading "priorities" plugin
Loading "allowdowngrade" plugin

0 packages excluded due to repository priority protections

Is this ok [y/N]:          

Off the top of my head, I can't think what would pull in 2 versions of smb4k.
