Conflicting with samba3x is NOT the correct solution. Because now, a "yum install samba3x" fails with "libtalloc-2.0.1-3.el5.x86_64 from epel-testing has depsolving problems: libtalloc conflicts with samba3x-common" - because of "Processing Dependency: libtalloc.so.1()(64bit) for package: samba3x"

From my point of view you are simply not allowed to provide a library having the same soname and same soversion as RHEL 5 does - this violates the EPEL policy right now, because we conflict with RHEL as our upstream.

There are no correct solutions at the moment for this issue. It's being resolved for RHEL 5.6 with the samba packaging team. This is an attempt to minimize the exposure of this conflict until that time.

The problem is that EPEL had libtalloc 2 during the RHEL 5.4 days, but RHEL 5.5 shipped with an incompatible library. Because some users already had libtalloc 2 (mostly for SSSD) we can't just drop it from EPEL. So we need to resolve this as best we can.

Waiting until RHEL 5.6 is not a solution. EPEL is not allowed to break RHEL.

As I stated above. EPEL did not break RHEL. RHEL broke EPEL, and the higher priority for EPEL is to not terminate support arbitrarily. The real problem here is that RHEL5.5 shipped AFTER libtalloc 2.0 was available in EPEL, and they shipped with an unsupported, forked version of the library, with the same soname. RHEL is being the bad citizen here.

The update seems to work - at least no failures during the whole day here.
