First, don't reply to old messages if you intend a new post. Your MUA tried to
be smart and included this in the header:
...so other intelligent threaded MUAs will list your post as a reply to that
old post (and thereby possibly hiding or deleting your post).
Now, an earlier poster already told you how to remove a certain package so
I'll contribute how to find which packages belong to a certain repo. This is
not (AFAIK) trivially done. What you can do is to run "yum list extras" which
will list all packages installed that belongs to _no_ (enabled) repo. Then
run that again with "--disablerepo=NAME" and the difference from those two is
what you want.
That is, something like this works on my machine for listing stuff installed
from rpmforge(all one line of course):
export T=$(mktemp) yum list extras > $T ; yum --disablerepo=rpmforge list
extras | grep -v -f $T ; rm -f $T
