I'm guessing the subscription-manager yum plugin is for RHEL and

For what it's worth, this situation is yet another example of why you do
not "install everything" from a repo, and why such an option is a bad
idea for install discs.  Plenty of packages are useless to most users,
some packages are mutually exclusive with others, some will cause
problems all by themselves...

I did NOT install everything from a repo!!!
As I already stated, it was not installed in the
first place when I had I nstalled the fc16 DVD,
because it was not on it (DVD). Ever since I
have been doing update every other day.
2 days ago?? yum -y update must have brought
it in.   -y!!!! BAD IDEA!!!
# rpm -q --last subscription-manager

will tell you when it was last updated/installed if you haven't removed it yet.


# grep subscription-manager /var/log/yum*

might still tell you.

Yes, it came in on June 7th's yum update.
However, looking at my command history ( keep a VERY
large command history just for issues like this),
I see no deliberate install of subscription-manager and it's siblings.
It came with yum update. THAT should not have happened.
