I am afraid I don't understand what is meant by [base].  I have four 
files in yum

-rw-r--r--  1 root root 233 Oct 28 10:34 fedora-devel.repo
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 244 Oct 28 10:34 fedora.repo
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 279 Nov  1 12:43 fedora-updates.repo
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 282 Oct 28 10:34 fedora-updates-testing.repo

my yum.conf looks like
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
retries=20
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=0

# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d
