What is REEL 5?

Is it a typo for RHEL 5? If so you could go to the http://rpm.pbone.net web site. You can download and install the software packages there. Click on advanced search and click on the RHEL 5 button. Then you will be searching only for RHEL 5 rpm packages. While on this site, once a package is selected, you can right click on the link to the package and copy the url. It is probably a repository that you can use as an installation source.

hi pradeep,
If you want to extract rpm's through online, you should have repository. As you are using RHEL5 it is better to go with rpmforge repo which you can get from [HTML]http://www.rpmforge.net[/HTML] install the RHEL5 rpm from there. Post me your result again.
