Ho to remove epel-release-6-8.noarch

How do I remove epel-release-6-8.noarch from the Cent OS? I just wanted to remove the epel to execute a script. Currently when I execute the script it is saying that package epel-release-6-8.noarch is already installed,so I guess if we remove it.

yum remove epel-release
Maybe the correct way is to check if it's already installed in the script itself and eventually skip the installation step:
if ! rpm -q --quiet epel-release
  <install epel-release>
  <do nothing>

you can disable the epel repo with the --disablerepo=epel

what did you install from epel ?
if you uninstall the repo without first uninstalling the rpm's you installed from epel you will have problems !

also is "yum-priorities-plugin" installed ?
it REALLY is NEEDED if you install third party software repos

see the centos wiki page
and the page for the plugin

also please post this ?unknown? "script" you are trying to run

If you know that epel is already installed, why don't you disable the test in the script that checks for it? Or will the script not work c orrectly if epel-release is installed? I can't imagine why this would be, though.
