Mixing 3rd party repos generally leads to conflicts.  On a Centos
system with EPEL as the only extra repo it 'just works'.  Either you
already have some conflicting package from a different repo or you
needed something from the base SL.    Also, if you get mimedefang and
clamd from different repos you may end up with a mismatch in
user/group settings that will cause permission problems on the socket
they use to communicate.
