Go to "/etc/yum.repos.d" directory and edit redhat's repo file and set "enabled=0"

I hope this helps!


under that folder there is rhel-debuginfo.repo, and by difault it is disabled. (enabled=0).
the proplem is when is install example mysql, it will download and install mysql 5.0... from rhel and mysql 5.1 from remi. and don't know how to keep the remi ones? which is the new version.
