Apt / Yum for RHEL

Are there any apt/yum repositories for RHEL ??

If not, which version of rpm (RH9, FC1, FC2) is used for RHEL ??

I've not used RHEL, but I would be surprised if there were official repos for either... I did have RH9 for awhile, and apt was a third-party add-on. It officially relied on up2date to keep systems updated.

I also wouldn't suggest trying unofficial repos on RHEL... RH could rightly claim you have modified it beyond the supported install.

Base RHEL yum channels are not available online, due to the commercial nature of the product. However, you will most likely need to have yum be able to access the base RPMs. If you have several RHEL installations, you may want to create a shared repository between your installations.

Ignore dependencies

You can ignored dependencies by using the '--nodeps' rpm option.
When trying to install older versions or reinstall a package the --force option can come in handy as well. However be CAREFUL with what packages you use theese on. It can lead to issues.

Don't do a dependency check before installing or upgrading a

Same as using --replacepkgs, --replacefiles, and --oldpackage.
