rhel 5 repo not working


hi guys,
i've used centos epel repo and rpmforge for my repo on my rhel 5.0, unfortunately both repos are not working while issuing the command yum install ..

sample yum.. yum install mysql-server

Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up repositories
rpmforge 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files
primary.xml.gz 100% |=========================| 4.1 MB 01:45
################################################## 11248/11248

any idea since mysql-server is an existing package on rpmforge

rhel5.0 is OLD
so you must be paying red hat for the backports for 5.0 ( 5.8 is current 5 )
also rpmforge is INCOMPATIBLE with RHN base repo
and will replace red hat system files and make the rhel install incompatible with RHN

that is why "yum-priorities" or "yum-protectBase" ARE NEEDED
install one of them
I recommend "yum-priorities" and configure it so it dose NOT change the base rhel install

mysql is in the base redhat install repo
it IS IN RHN


RHEL5 is not free
You MUST have a paid for license
then
Code:
su -
yum install mysql

currently, the setup of my linux box is i have rhel 5 linux since i'm looking if i can run another repo without using the rhel repo since rhel repo required license to obtain the package over yum.

I used the ff repo combination right now and removed rpmforge on the box

epel and remi repo

installing yum priorities as your suggested still no luck on acquiring mysql package. any ideas?

well yes it dose REQUIRE a support contract RHEL is not free
if you are going to use RHEL then PAY for it !

now there are two free rebuilds of rhel
CentOS 6 and ScientificLinux 6

unless YOU BUY the required license you DO NOT install anything on RHEL

Pay for it
or
use something else

CentOS
http://centos.org/

Scientific Linux
http://www.scientificlinux.org/
