Should not be a problem. It _might_ be better to first install the
Planet CCRMA kernels. I have an updated yum in the Planet CCRMA repo
that supposedly will help with that but even then some users have had
problems - apparently the internal dependency resolution of yum can get
confused with what I want it to do.

It should not break things but I prefer to run my updates manually.
There is always the possibility that some update from a repository will
conflict with already installed packages (and might make yum erase
something) and I want to know about problems before commiting to an
actual update.
