You'd need to do 'yum install /usr/lib64/libwhatever.so.1' or 'yum
install "libwhatever.so.1()(64bit)" as that is what the provides are in the
package.  (not sure this second one will work, but using the full path will
certainly work)

To unsubscribe:

includepkgs=glibc\* libX11\* libXau\* libXdmcp\* libXext\* nvidia-x11-drv\*

How should includepkgs look?  If I do this to install nvidia-x11 the
exclude kills it.  It wants the following i[3,6]86 packages.

nvidia-x11-drv          x86_64     1.0.9755-1.nodist.rf  rpmforge
     11 M
