note, the new one may have showed up in /etc/yum.repos.d/ as  
planetccrma-repo.RPMnew or something that needs to be renamed. if you  
use command like yum updating, you might want to make a subdirectory  
to house the regular fedora-repos (mine is /etc/yum.repos.d/NOT/ )

i was having a problem with yumex in fc6, everytime it was invoked it  
spent a long long time recalculating meta data and such. nearly  
unusable unless i could wait all afternoon. fc7 seems to work better  
in many ways (plus the whole gnome looks nicer.)
side note: supercollider works again in fc7 on the pentium3.  hmm.
