In my attempts to reproduce what you are seeing, I used 'yum info' a
few times for the packages that were not on my systems. But in your
case (pure rpm operations) yum cache will not be relevant. By the way
I looked at both CentOS 5 and 6 but did not see any inconsistency. And
the reason why I asked about the kernel version was because it was not
clear which version/release of CentOS you are running. Sorry for the
noise. I will shut up now.
