Hi all,

I've been trying to update an f18-xfce using yum.

For whatever reason while loading repos I get to fedora.updates and the 
download rate drops down to 3-4 kBs.  f18 will be EOL by the time this 
finishes ;)

Ok, disable it.  Try to install something (alsa-utils).  Wants 5.8M but 
this time at 3.0kBs.

Is there anyway to find out which one of the repo servers is foobar, and 
if so, a way to blacklist it?
