I have a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2 (Tikanga) system and there is only one repository named rhel-debuginfo.repo and it doesn't seem to work either.

Could you point me out some default yum repositories needed for maintaining a development system (which includes svn, mvn, httpd, tomcat etc.)

  • I think that's available to subscribed user only , you may need to pay for it – daisy May 10 '12 at 5:28
  • @warl0ck thanks. Looking for other options. – Shamal Karunarathne May 11 '12 at 7:57
  • Use centos instead , it's based on RHEL , provide free updates – daisy May 11 '12 at 8:00

If you are running Red Hat Entreprise Linux 5, you need to set up the system to connect to RHN. Read Red Hat's Documentation on the subject. You can get a free 30-day test license if you are interested in testing it out.

The other solution is to reinstall the host with CentOS, Scientific Linux, or one of the many other RHEL-derivitives.

(EDIT: linked distro names)
