please post the content of your files /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmforge.repo and /etc/yum.repos.d/mirrors-rpmforge

have you followed a guide to install the rpmforge repos? Maybe someting like
this?

How are your DNS settings?

try the folowing commands and post the output:
Code:
nslookup www.google.com
Code:
dig www.google.com
recommendation: add the priorities plugin to you yum installation and configure it to avoid problems with overwritten core packages.

recommendation: upgrade to CentOS 6.4
