Check places like /usr/local or /opt, unless they installed the source packages, in which case they'll be under /root/rpmbuild. If it was a tarball install, then to rebuild is easy:
cd <dir>
./configure (check to see if there's any switches you need to set) make make install

Oy, as they say, vey. Type yum clean all, then try again.

     mark
-----------

Did the yum clean all and got " Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security  Cleaning up Everything"
So I afterwards I tried the ' yum install openssh ' and got the same error messages, so I tried the yum install openssh-server and also got the same error messages.
