CentOS 5 repos on RHEL 6


Is it possible to add CentOS 5 repos in RHEL 6 registered with RHN and then grab few packages from it.

The packages that I want are

qlogic-mpi-register
mpi-frontend
mpi-selector
openmpi_pgi
openmpi_gcc
openmpi-devel
openmpi-libs
openmpi_pathscale
mpi-benchmark
mpi-libs
mpi-devel
mpi-doc

These are not available in RHEL 6 repos.

Thanks

install rpms for a different version using a repo file

i have done that with non system files .A few games and some fonts

best advice -- Don't

It is possible, yes.

But the dependency and library hell that you will be in afterward, will not be worth it.

IMO -- DO NOT do this.

I've done it with a couple of things but grabbed individual rpms rather than an entire repo. I'm with the others--don't do it.
