What can I do to fix these and get mongo going

Your package conflict with older version of mongodb. Package mongo-10gen is mongodb 2.4 (references here). To resolve that, just uninstall the conflicting packages

sudo yum remove mongo-10gen-server mongo-10gen-tools mongo-10gen-shell mongo-10gen-mongos mongo-10gen

Then install again mongodb

sudo yum install mongodb-org
