Strange, because it works here:

[root at shutdown Documentation]# yum -v update | grep -i geoip
 --> geoip-devel-1.4.0-1.el5.rf.x86_64 from rpmforge excluded (priority)
 --> geoip-1.4.0-1.el5.rf.x86_64 from rpmforge excluded (priority)
 --> geoip-1.4.4-1.el5.rf.x86_64 from rpmforge excluded (priority)
 --> geoip-1.4.5-1.el5.rf.x86_64 from rpmforge excluded (priority)
 --> geoip-devel-1.4.4-1.el5.rf.x86_64 from rpmforge excluded (priority)
 --> geoip-devel-1.4.5-1.el5.rf.x86_64 from rpmforge excluded (priority)
 --> GeoIP-devel-1.4.4-2.el5.kb.x86_64 from kbs-CentOS-Testing excluded (priority)
 --> GeoIP-devel-1.4.4-2.el5.kb.x86_64 from kbs-CentOS-Testing excluded (priority)
 --> GeoIP-1.4.4-2.el5.kb.x86_64 from kbs-CentOS-Testing excluded (priority)
 --> GeoIP-1.4.4-2.el5.kb.x86_64 from kbs-CentOS-Testing excluded (priority)
[root at shutdown Documentation]# 

Cheers,

Ralph
