Yes, that is correct; if I run "yum install libgeos.so.2 gdal" an older 
version of geos (2.2.3) is successfully installed.  However, I have an 
application (GeoDjango) that requires geos 3.0.0 or higher.  So it would 
be great if both gdal and the latest version of geos available in 
RPMforge (3.1.0) could be installed side by side.

Can anyone assist with this?  I would be most appreciative.
