YUM: Repository already added, not adding again
I read a post a couple of days ago on ading repositories to yum with gedit (which I did) but now everytime I start to use yum or Yum Extender I get the following message:

Yum Starting:
Repository atrpms-stable already added, not adding again
Repository freshrpms already added, not adding again
Setting up Repo: updates-released
repomd.xml 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00

Everything works fine, but I'd still like to know why I get an 'error' message and what to do about it.

That can be from having the same bracketed name in different repo files.
On my boxen, I have several repo files like this: fedora-extras.repo fedora.repo k12ltsp.repo livna.repo macromedia.repo
Each one has different names inside like this: [base] [updates-released] [updates-testing] [livna-stable] [k12ltsp-base]
It doesn't matter what the bracket name is as long as it's unique.

<been away for a while...>

So presumably I have 2 repo files with the same bracketed name. .. and deleting or chnaging one of them would do the trick. Don't remember where they are , but I'll have a look.
