Hi again,Last time I ended up using the remi repo, it's working great. My php packages are the php53 ones from the CentOS-5 - Base repo (including php-pear 1:1.4.9-8.el5 ).
What I did was, I had the remi repo installed, and and installed mysql-server, mysql, libmysql, and many php-*, like php-pdo,php-mysql etc. So I wanted to revert to the base repo for these. So I removed the remi repo. And uninstalled all of theses packages, and reinstalled them using the yum coming from the base repo.
Just wondering why in EL5's base repo the latest supported mysql
package is 5.5 and in EL6's base repo it is 5.1? Seems strange to me.
(it is clear that the SCL of EL6 has version 5.5 but that implies a
different update policy).

When I fire up the virtualbox VM Centos starts as I would expect, but
when I try to use yum list updates (or any of several other yum
command I've tried) I get a repo error - "

http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=6&arch=i386&repo=os error was

I have a situation where the stock repo files that should exist in /etc/yum.repos.d/ (like centos-base.repo) are not present. I need to get them installed. I am sure this is simple, but after hours of searching, it seems I am not googling it correctly.
Basically I have a server with custom repos that are useless to me. I need epel, and epel needs centos-base.repo.
