What's the best way in RHEL to install a newer version of a package than what's in the repositories?
In Ubuntu I can just add the repo for a newer version of Ubuntu, install the package with apt, and then disable the newer repo, but with RHEL and having to register the system with RHN, I don't see a way to do this. Is there some other way that would be more appropriate?
In particular, I'm trying to get a newer version of gcc-gfortran installed.
Thanks for any input!
