I have an installation of CentOS 5.2 that all of a sudden began experiencing problems with yum. Whenever I try to do any task with yum, I get the following. As you can see I have rpmfusion repos installed. How do I go about solving this problem?

[root@mysystem ~]# yum search php

It seems that you've messed up your yum config files. As far as I understand you've enabled rpmfusion update databases over the default config databases. Check yhe files in your /etc/yum.repos.d and check inside them for exclusions.
