Where can I find a 3rd Party Repository for RHEL 5?
 
Does anyone know where I can find a legitimate 3rd party repository that provides rpm packages for RHEL 5? My trial subscription to the Red Hat Network has expired and I want to be able to test installing packages so that I can prepare for the RHCT examination. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

I've heard that any of the CentOS repositories will work with RHEL5 (which makes sense as CentOS is just a rebuild of RHEL5). IU've never actually tried it, though.

Why not use CentOS?

FWIW I used CentOS to study...in fact...the first time I saw RHEL was during the test...

I am now RHCE...so yes CentOS _DOES_ get you the RHCT/E ;)

You would probably do best to use a RHEL clone like Scientific Linux or CentOS.

AFAIK, you can use CentOS repos with RHEL. I don't use either, so I'm not sure what the regular repos are. Here is info on additional repositories.
