Percona-Server-shared-51 breaks MySQL on CentOS 6.6

DoktorJoyDoktorJoy EntrantCurrent User Role Beginner
I am not sure if I should post this here or in the Xtrabackup forum - but the problem seems related to Percona-Server-Shared-51 package.

We have a set of minimal install CentOS 6.6 servers with MySQL 5.1.73-rel14 (the default for CentOS 6) installed.

We use xtrabackup from Percona, installed via yum from the persona-release.repo. This is the only non-CentOS repo we use.

This morning, I came to do a regular round of package updates:

>yum update
--> Running transaction check
---> Package Percona-Server-shared-51.x86_64 0:5.1.73-rel14.12.624.rhel6 will be obsoleting
---> Package dhclient.x86_64 12:4.1.1-43.P1.el6.centos will be updated
---> Package dhclient.x86_64 12:4.1.1-43.P1.el6.centos.1 will be an update
---> Package dhcp-common.x86_64 12:4.1.1-43.P1.el6.centos will be updated
---> Package dhcp-common.x86_64 12:4.1.1-43.P1.el6.centos.1 will be an update
---> Package kernel.x86_64 0:2.6.32-504.8.1.el6 will be installed
---> Package kernel-firmware.noarch 0:2.6.32-504.3.3.el6 will be updated
---> Package kernel-firmware.noarch 0:2.6.32-504.8.1.el6 will be an update
---> Package mysql-libs.x86_64 0:5.1.73-3.el6_5 will be obsoleted

I said 'y' to this on the first server. Yum went ahead, and promptly broke MySQL. Both client and server were broken. An attempt to use the client resulted in:

mysql: relocation error: mysql: symbol strmov, version libmysqlclient_16 not defined in file with link time reference

To fix this, I had to disable the Percona repo, and remove the Persona-Server-Shared-51 package. The latter also removed mysql and mysql-server packages on the way - and when I reinstalled those, they overwrote /etc/my.cnf (my fault for not anticipating this I guess). So that was a bit of fun.

Anyway - I have a few more of these slaves to update, and they're all suggesting they're going to 'obsolete' the Persona-Server-Shared-51 package also - so how do I get round this?

Also - this seems to suggest that by installing just xtrabackup from the repo, our core MySQL installation may have been modified?
