Description kksheth 2011-09-26 15:10:19 UTC
Description of problem:i have installed fedora15 32 bit. 
recently i put redhat 6.1 dvd in dvd-drive.

instantly, package-updater opened and showed some 31 packages for update.

this is strange for me as i have disabled updater. then i observed that all packages are meant for redhat 6.1.

i also observed that simply act of putting dvd in drive created a repo for redhat.

output of some commands are as below (i think this is a bug for redhat and therefore reporting it here. i do not know where-else to report it)
[kksheth@localhost ~]$ cd /etc/yum.repos.d
[kksheth@localhost yum.repos.d]$ ls -l
