This is the case for 2.3 on RHEL4, or 2.4 on RHEL5, however 2.3 on RHEL5 will 
upgrade the RHEL package (which on RHEL contains the library) and install the 
library from my packages. Since the filenames for the library would otherwise 
conflict, there is no other option here (but I'm targeting 2.4 for my own 
servers which will run RHEL5 anyway, I'm currently running 2.3 on RHEL4 and 

I note that the instructions for installing are hidden in the .repo file:


It is not necessary to remove any other packages, or rebuild software against 
the libraries from my packages.
