Based on the answer to a similar question (CentOS) I have installed the jPackage .repo file and attempted sudo yum install tomcat6. I am met with the following error messages:

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I found a site stating that perhaps installing rpm-build was the solution to all my problems, but that was not the case – it's already installed.

I'd prefer to keep the package managed by a package manager (yum). Any experience with getting this to work?

The RHN packages only include Tomcat5. For reference this is RHEL 5.5 on Rackspace servers, to be used with Django/Solr/Haystack for site search. Moving from previous hosting on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS where the site was hosting/built with Tomcat6.

I've had the same problem today. My solution was to just install the missing RPM by hand:

rpm -Uvh https://github.com/downloads/pallet/pallet/jpackage-utils-compat-el5-0.0.1-1.noarch.rpm

No more problems after that.

I was able to get Tomcat6 installed by first installing Tomcat5 from the RHN repository, which installed all dependencies successfully. After that, from the jPackage repo I installed the 1.6.0 version of the JDK, and then Tomcat6. I consider this to be an extremely dirty solution but since it works, I can't really argue with that.(Unless I find conflicts in the future.)
