Could please you possibly do a list of all the installed RPMs on the
system in question. Just for cause do a grep to list any packages like
"rf" = rpmforge, "jason or "litka" "centos"

Just by thought and maybe this is going to far off the subject. If it is
I appologize. What lets yum run the correct way when fastest mirror is
not loaded as a plugin? That there in sense does not sound right at all.
The thing that makes me think is a possible botched yum update that yums
meta data was hijacked and in turn got packages that were bugged or
malwared? IE...The Lateness of the update from the mirrors. Makes me
think. I know I know it's just a question.
