I do believe that I had the same problem as you. Forum guru TrevorH showed me the solution, so here is the link to my post and his answer.

Answer from TrevorH:

Edit the file /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Media.repo and make sure that the line enabled = says 0

I truly hope I am reading your error messages and mine correctly.

I am so very sorry that making the line in the CentOS-Media.repo file read: enable=0 did not work. Here is my file for
/etc/yum.repos.d/CentOD-Media.repo:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# CentOS-Media.repo
#
# This repo is used to mount the default locations for a CDROM / DVD on
# CentOS-6. You can use this repo and yum to install items directly off the
# DVD ISO that we release.
#
# To use this repo, put in your DVD and use it with the other repos too:
# yum --enablerepo=c6-media [command]
#
# or for ONLY the media repo, do this:
#
# yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c6-media [command]

[c6-media]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Media
baseurl=file:///media/CentOS/
file:///media/cdrom/
file:///media/cdrecorder/
gpgcheck=1
enabled=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-6

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The only other "errno 14" posting error for yum that I read tonight had a mis-spelled
word. One person who had a problem had the word

releaserver

instead of

releasever

in the line

name=CentOS-$releasever - Media

I was hoping your problem was the same as mine. I apologize.

I came across a very similar issue and found a solution in [url=https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=689208]Bug 689208 - yum --disablerepo does not work[/url]

Basically run
[code]# yum-config-manager --disable c6-media[/code]

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

Seems that [b]yum-config-manager[/b] is new with CentOS-6. You have taught the old dog a new trick, so I added it to [url=http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/YumAndRPM]Yum and RPM Tricks[/url]. :-)

Please note that a posting to such an old thread is not likely to be noticed by many people, but I'm sure other [url=https://www.centos.org/search.php?query=c6-media&mid=30&action=showall&andor=AND]opportunities to use the knowledge[/url] will be available.

Hello

just edit your /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Media.repo
and edit the base url:

[c6-media]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Media
baseurl=file:///media/name of your CD/DVD/flashdrive or any media/

gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-6


or you can just set enabled option to 0...

hope this helps.. ^^
:-) :-)
