I /var/log/rpmpkgs is a (weeklyupdated?) list of file names. Some have
".rf" in them, other "plus" etc. This should tell you for most packages
from where they came.
I would then read up on some of the yum stuff (plugins) and use a
combination of "includepkgs=", "exclude=" and "protect=" to get you
going. Set this stuff up before you do any other changes.
