I'd have thought the simplest (and safest) thing to do
was to add these repositories to /etc/yum.repos.d/
but with "enabled=0".
Then if you want to install a particular program not in the standard repos
you can say eg "yum --enablerepo=livna install <whatever>".
I got in quite a confused state by running "yum update"
with fedora-devel enabled.
This installed a version of python which caused trouble all over the place.
