Topic: Enabling Remi Repo on CentOS 5.6

I'm trying to enable remi repo on CentOs 5.6 but i'm getting an error message about a yum dependency on "rpm -Uvh".

I'm following the instructions on repository configuration on this page: http://blog.famillecollet.com/pages/Config-en

After I download both rpm packages and run "rpm -Uvh remi-release-5*.rpm epel-release-5*.rpm" remi repo isn't successfully installed.

I get the following error message:
aviso: remi-release-5.rpm: Cabeçalho V3 assinatura DSA: NOKEY, key ID 00f97f56
erro: Dependências não satisfeitas:
    yum é requerido por remi-release-5.9-1.el5.remi.noarch
This message is on portuguese.

Translated to english it would be something like:
Warning: remi-release-5.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 00f97f56
Error: unmet dependencies:
yum is required by remi-release-5.9-1.el5.remi.noarch

Re: Enabling Remi Repo on CentOS 5.6

How can you have a CentOS 5 without Yum ?

If you haven't yum, you don't need the remi-release package which mostly provides the yum configuration.

And yum is the common installer for CentOS, so without yum it will be a nightmare to install any RPM (but still possible...)

But I do have Yum. I use it all the time to install packages.
I wanted to upgrade to php54 so i needed to use your repo.
But when I tried to enabled the repo i got that error.
Is there anyway that rpm isn't finding yum. Epel repo installed successfully.

Re: Enabling Remi Repo on CentOS 5.6

rpm --query yum

Else, use the "2.3. YUM manual configuration" solution.
