I'm glad you got it solved.  Hope you'll find a solution sometime to
the yum issues you've had.  While I still use rpm directly for
querying my system and the occasional install or removal, most of the
time I now use yum.

I build some packages for my own systems and have a local repository
which all works pretty well.  One of the biggest advantages to me is
not having to grab all of the packages I want to feed to rpm.  I have
a much easier time just saying "yum install package" and having it get
what it needs for me.
