I am not familiar with repos, and I don't get why there are several versions of EPEL (this is a bit philosophical I know, but I am afraid I am missing something in all that).

Should I just look inside of them which one has the packages I want, with no other consideration?

(using CentOS 5.x)

  • EPEL 5 is meant to align with RHEL5, CentOS 5, Scientific Linux 5.x, etc.
  • EPEL 6 is meant to align with RHEL6, CentOS 6, Scientific Linux 6.x, etc.
