Removing a repository from CentOS

Let's chalk this one up to the Monday Morning Blues.

I'm running through a CentOS 6.x test server and needed to install the EPEL repos. For some reason I managed to install the RHEL5 rpm instead of the RHEL6. (D'Oh!)

This is a quick fix on removing the repo completely to install the proper one.

0. Got root? (or sudo)

1. Remove Repo
From terminal

rpm -qa | grep epel

Expected output (in my case)

yum remove epel-release-5-4
yum clean all

That's it!
