"yum clean all" reports Repository epel-source is listed more than once in the configuration. The epel.repo files only has one epel-source entry, not more than one.

"yum list all" does list epel packages.

When I search or check for a package should there be some notification of using epel? Yum search still only lists the below, with no reference to epel:

yum search vim
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Loading "security" plugin
rhel-i386-server-vt-5     100% |=========================| 1.4 kB    00:00
rhel-i386-server-5        100% |=========================| 1.4 kB    00:00
rhn-tools-rhel-i386-serve 100% |=========================| 1.2 kB    00:00

I would check to see what /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo is saying:

[epel]
name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 5 - $basearch
#baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/$basearch
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=epel-5&arch=$basearch
failovermethod=priority
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-EPEL

I would then do a 'yum clean all; yum list all' and see if items with
EPEL show up
