    RE: More software for Enterprise Linux - the EPEL repo
    Great post! Just wanted to note that EPEL is not supported with Red Hat and your RHEL support contract. If GSS is able to find a solution with EPEL, it is not uncommon to suggest to the customer to go that route. I would also suggest running EPEL and RPM Fusion if you need your extra packages. "RPM Fusion provides software that the Fedora Project or Red Hat doesn't want to ship. That software is provided as precompiled RPMs for all current Fedora versions and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5; you can use the RPM Fusion repositories with tools like yum and PackageKit. RPM Fusion is a merger of Dribble, Freshrpms, and Livna; our goal is to simplify end-user experience by grouping as much add-on software as possible in a single location. Also see our FoundingPrinciples. " http://rpmfusion.org/ I would hold off including rpmforge along with those two repos. In latest testing (check date of this post) they do not play well with each other and there are a lot of RPM conflicts. ~rp
