yum update fails
 
"yum update all" fails with a bunch of missing dependencies. Googling suggests "yum clean all", but:

[joliver@desc ~]$ sudo yum clean all
Loaded plugins: dellsysidplugin, rhnplugin


Repository dell-omsa-specific is listed more than once in the configuration


However...

[joliver@desc ~]$ cat /etc/yum.conf
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
keepcache=0

logfile=/var/log/yum.log

# Note: yum-RHN-plugin doesn't honor this.

# Default.
# installonly_limit = 3

# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d

I don't see where it's getting "dell-omsa-specific is listed more than once"

Suggestions?

I've haven't used RedHat since they started charging for it. I do however use CentOS a bit. I know that on Centos they have seperate repo's for base and extras. Does RedHat have several repo's it's using? Maybe its calling for that repo in a seperate repo file.

and what version of RHEL 5 are you running
5.0 ,5.1,5.2 ,5.3 ???
and have you called your paid for tech support or is this the "free" unsupported and NOT updated version 5 .0

if the second i would suggest you install CentOS 5.3
