- The repositories that have been installed using the <literal condition="community">kolab-&PRODUCT_VERSION;-community-release</literal><literal condition="enterprise">kolab-&PRODUCT_VERSION;-enterprise-release</literal> package(s) have a pre-configured priority of <code>50</code>. The default repository priority is <code>99</code>. This will set the correct priorities, unless you have repositories configured other than the base operating system repositories (not including 'addons' and 'extras' on CentOS platforms), EPEL and the Kolab Groupware repositories. Should the system happen to already make use of YUM priorities, please make sure the Kolab repositories have the appropriate priority.
