Install epel repository on CentOS 5.5

In order to install EPEL take the following steps:

  1. rpm -ivh
  2. disable epel repository since by default it is enabled. It is not recommended to keep non standard repositories activated. Use it just in case you need.
  3. sed -i “s/enabled=1/enabled=0/” /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo
  4. install the packages you’re looking for by using yum
  5. yum –enablerepo=epel install rpmdevtools

That is it!


useful words: centos 5.5 epel, epel centos 5.5, centos epel 5.5, epel 5.5
