On EL5, everything is in the regular EPEL repositories - once you enable
them, you don't have to do anything else.
into the yum.repos.d and I get:
[root@localhost SRPMS]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.8 (Tikanga)
[root@localhost SRPMS]# yum install 389-ds

Error: failure: repodata/primary.xml.gz from epel-389-ds-base: [Errno

And yes, I have tried the various cache invalidation techniques to no
