Here is a sample yum.conf file

[main]
srcdir = /mrepo
wwwdir = /mrepo/www
confdir = /etc/mrepo.conf.d
arch = i386
hardlink = yes
shareiso = yes
hardlinkpluscmd = /usr/bin/hardlink++ 2>/dev/null

mailto = bhutch@gmail.com
smtp-server = localhost

[5Server]
name = Red Hat Enterprise Linux $release Server ($arch)
release = 5
arch = i386
iso = rhel-$release-server-$arch-disc?.iso
metadata = repomd
updates = rhns:///rhel-$arch-server-$release
rpmforge = rsync://apt.sw.be/pub/freshrpms/pub/dag/redhat/el$release/en/$arch/RPMS.dag/

Change mailto

Here's another link with additional repositories:

Here is a link to Dag Wieer's repo, also very popular:

Hello,
It's the 1st time I use Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Im stuck with the package manager. I'd like to install yum but it fails:

Code:
