I've added the "EPEL" repo:

But every time I run:

sudo yum install redis

I get this:

No package redis available.
Error: Nothing to do

NOTE: I've already ran:

sudo yum clean metadata

But still, can't install redis.

  • Did you exclude it? – Michael Hampton Aug 1 '15 at 23:29
  • No that I know. How can I check? – danielrvt Aug 1 '15 at 23:33
  • Look for exclude directives in yum.conf and in all the .repo files. – Michael Hampton Aug 1 '15 at 23:34
  • No, there is no such directive in any repo file nor yum.conf – danielrvt Aug 1 '15 at 23:39

How did you add the EPEL repo? Here's what works for me on CentOS 6.6-final

wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
rpm -Uvh remi-release-6*.rpm epel-release-6*.rpm
yum install redis -y
rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-test install redis
  • You need to install remi-release, not epel-release, which is already installed ;) – Remi Collet Nov 5 '15 at 5:43
sudo yum list redis
sudo yum install redis.x86_64  # something list before.

You could list the packages by yum list and then choose which to install. You get package not available is because the name you type is not exist, so list before you install.
