Default yum update fails for 5.6

google for "centos error performing checksum" refers to createrepo but of
course "yum install createrepo" also fails and the instructions appear to be
overkill. Is there a "simple" soultion?

here's the result of yum update:

# yum -v update
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Config time: 0.118
Yum Version: 3.2.22
Setting up Package Sacks

* rpmforge: ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de

ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/enterprise/5Server/en/os/SRPMS/repodata/primary.xml.gz:

Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/primary.xml.gz from rhel-src: [Errno 256] No more

and for repolist

Your problem is that rhel-src repo is not available.

Workaround is to run:

"yum update --disablerepo=rhel-src"

until you disable rhel-src in /etc/yum.repos.d/ file

if you just want to update: disable the rhel-src repo, you don't need it.
