Every repository that you use, has a 'baseurl', that points to the
'base' of that repository. yum uses this information to get the list of
packages, updates etc from that repository.
eg. the baseurl for kbs-CentOS-Extras is :
There will be atleast 1 such entry for every repository you have
configured on the system. On CentOS4, repositories can be configured
either in /etc/yum.conf or in /etc/yum.repos.d/ (where the file names
end with .repo ), each repository information beings with a [name of repo]
So if you look through both the places ( /etc/yum.conf and the files in
/etc/yum.repos.d/ ) you should be able to find what baseurl is being
used for freshrpms.
Reason why I ask is that freshrpms dont host packages that are usable on
any CentOS version. If you are pulling in packages from there....
