What does "yum repolist" print? It looks like you may be missing some
repositories, e.g. the Fedora "Everything" repository that contains
openbabel and inchi.

$ yum whatprovides libinchi.so.0
inchi.i386 : The IUPAC International Chemical Identifier (InChI) library
$ yum list inchi
Available Packages
inchi.i386                               1.0.1-8.fc8            fedora
