Not possible to install httpd, mysql via rpmforge repository of RHEL5


Hello friends,
I wish to install httpd and mysql server softwares via YUM and i added
rpmforge rpm, which installed the following content in my /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmforge.repo

Code:
### Name: RPMforge RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise 5 - dag
### URL: http://rpmforge.net/
[rpmforge]
name = Red Hat Enterprise $releasever - RPMforge.net - dag
baseurl = http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/$basearch/rpmforge/RPMS
mirrorlist = http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/mirrors-rpmforge
#mirrorlist = file:///etc/yum.repos.d/mirrors-rpmforge
enabled = 1
protect = 0
gpgkey = file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmforge-dag
gpgcheck = 1
But, when i did a yum clean all and yum install httpd, it is not working.

I went to this URL:
http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/ via browser and I could not see any major packages from it....Why is it so?

What should I do to get the RHEL5 packages from mirror sites such as rpmforge or epel5 without registering with RHN?

Thanks

You can install packages from other mirrors on RHEL5. What is the issue you are facing? Give the exact errors you see on your screen. But the better way is to use CentOS5 instead of RHEL.

I don't think rpmforge is a regular RedHat mirror. You might want to use use a standard mirror.

YOU DO NOT DO ANYTHING until you PAY red hat and buy the license !!!
then you run
Code:
yum groupinstall "Web Server"

chaitanya..Our client uses RHEL5.4 as their server and they have an RHN licence, but for testing purposes, we need to make sure our software applications sync well with RHEL5.4, with the correct versions, etc. So, we wish to install httpd,mysql, etc via YUM from the standard mirrors of RHEL5. This is the scenario...

Could u please let me know what are the other standard mirrors of RHEL5 as I am unable to locate the exact one..???

awesomemachine, john...thanks for ur replies.

Right now I use CentOS5. But I remember using CentOS5 mirrors of EPEL for installing packages. To check your software's compatibility, you could install CentOS5.4. It is binary compatible with RHEL and so you can test your package. Else, if you have the optical media for the distribution, you can install the packages from the media as well.
