  You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
  You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                         package-cleanup --dupes
                         rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.

You seem to be missing the package called readline. My RHEL-5 shows the following:
# yum whatprovides libreadline.so.5
Loaded plugins: product-id, rhnplugin, security, subscription-manager
Updating Red Hat repositories.
readline-5.1-3.el5.i386 : A library for editing typed command lines.
Repo        : rhel-x86_64-server-5
Matched from:
Other       : libreadline.so.5

You might be missing the rhel-x86_64-server-5 repository. If this is on a RHEL-system, you likely need to register it at the Red Hat Network:

addon-epel5-x86_64 is a local mirror of the EPEL5 x86_64 repository.

I understand there are 32 packages in the x86_64 repository, so that
doesn't seem to be the issue.  Is something on my end broken, or is
there a bug in the package?
