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.
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 - "
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Could not retrieve mirrorlist
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.
