yum repos CentOS 6

The repositories configuration files are located at “/etc/yum.repos.d/” in CentOS 6+

Run yum repolist to check for enabled repositories which will give you a list repo IDs and repo names:

To permanently disable a repo, open ‘/etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Media.repo’ in a text editor like nano/gedit/emacs, go to the end of file and change ‘enabled=1’ to ‘enabled=0’

That’s it, you just disabled a repository on CentOS 6.5!
