This typically means that you installed an rpm via just rpm vs. using yum or yum localinstall.

Thx for your reply.

So what's the bad result if we omit this one ?

Thx.

It's just a warning, of little consequence, and you shouldn't see it again until you make some changes outside of YUM. (Of course, if you see it and you haven't been updating/installing not using YUM, you should review your system's security.)

I get it fairly often when I use the smart update management system to work around dependency problems in my Fedora 17 (Rawhide) virtual installation.
