I recently acquired a red hat server that runs RHEL 5.5. I get a feeling that my YUM repositories are totally out of date because of the following reasons:
- I tried updating GCC using YUM. The updated version shows 4.1.2-54 as the version number, while the latest is 4.9.
- Similarly, I tried installing SVN. The (newly) installed version shows 1.6.11 as version number, while I believe 1.8.9 is the latest.
Because of these incidents, I am led to believe that my YUM repositories are out of date. Further, all these happened after I updated the system using 'yum update'. Is there anything I can do to update the repository URLs without upgrading RHEL to a newer version? Thanks a lot!
