Speaking of which, yum repositories created with the latest version of
createrepo can't be used by CentOS 5. When trying to install packages
from such a repo it will always fail due to a failed checksum

The 'createrepo' tool has an option to use a different checksum method
(-s SUMTYPE / --checksum=SUMTYPE), but it doesn't seem to have any
