Where to find packages missing from DVD for this exact release of RHEL?


Hi.
Installed RHEL 6.0 x86_64 from DVD.
Now I need to install git-svn.
On DVD in Packages/ there's git, but no git-svn.
Does it mean that there's no official git-svn package?

If I download the latest package from a popular repo, it will ask to update the dependencies to newer version. I don't want it.

To find an extended repo on the internet I googled the exact filenames from the DVD:
Code:
"zd1211-firmware-1.4-4.el6.noarch.rpm" "libpcap-1.0.0-6.20091201git117cb5.el6.i686.rpm" "libglademm24-2.6.7-3.1.el6.x86_64.rpm" "git-1.7.1-2.el6.x86_64.rpm"
It gave me just one working result: http://mirrors.e21.cn/CentOS6.0_x64/Packages/
yet, the checksums of packages differ from DVD.

CentOS rebuild the packages to deal with licensing agreements. The package will be valid.

Note that if you have no RHN subscription, you have NO BUSINESS running Redhat. You should migrate it to CentOS instead, so the EXACT scenario you're in now doesn't happen. Migrating to CentOS is very simple.

Can you please answer this?

Also, do you know why modern package versions have the suffix "0.1" ?
git-1.7.1-2.el6_0.1.x86_64.rpm
git-1.7.1-2.el6.x86_64.rpm

# 3 .

"git-svn" : # yum install git-svn
But if you have no Redhat license / subscription : No packages are available.


git : 1.7.1 is the "major" version number.
And : el6_0.1 is the "minor" version, used for 'build version'.
The latest build version is el6_4.1
All version numbers ftp://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/linux/en...r/en/os/SRPMS/


Migrate to CentOS http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/MigrationGuide
... Then all packages are free. No license required.
