Yum problem


My yum have gone crazy lately. I cannot search, install, update or do anything with yum. There's something wrong with macromedia repos but I don't know what is it.

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# yum install gnome-sudoku*
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories

I'm not sure what the cause of the problem is either, but this happened to me when I tried to update yesterday. You can get round it temporarily by adding the option '--disablerepo=macromedia'. Hopefully there's just a short term problem with the macromedia repository and it will be up again soon.

Ok. I have solved it. Just change the "enable=1" to "enable=0" in the /etc/yum.repos.d/macromedia.repo
