On most of the CentOS 5 machines I manage, if I run "yum list

name preceded by an @ sign. Apparently the repo from which the
package was installed, which would be immensely useful.

Two questions:
I addressed most of this in a thread called "Re: [CentOS] how to find..."
about a week ago.

Regarding the "strange" yum version on the one machine a quick google would
suggest it came from a c5-testing repo at one time (with lots of disclaimers
not to use it outside of testing...).

1. Can I have that feature on the other CentOS 5 machines too?
The machine in question has yum version 3.2.27-12.el5_from_el6
while all others have version 3.2.22-39.el5.centos.
Where did that "el5_from_el6" version come from? The "yum list"
entry for yum itself does unfortunately not show a repo name.

2. Can anything be done about the lines still saying only
"installed"? How do find out where those packages came from?
