RHEL 7 Beta, Extra Packages
Hopefully, a lot of you are trying out RHEL 7. I know I have been for the last weeks and I documented my experience in an earlier post. Initially, I had some trepidation about moving to the new beta without EPEL being available. For the most part, I have been able to track down RPMs for everything I need that wasn’t included in the Beta, but, I am happy to discover that the “beta” of EPEL for RHEL7 is now available.
If you haven’t seen it already, make sure you go take a look at the launch site.
However, the short version is to install a new repo. Simplest way is to
sudo yum install http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/beta/7/x86_64/epel-release-7-0.1.noarch.rpm
Just remember, like all the rest of it, it’s still a beta.
