    yum install question

    I wanted to install tomcat7 on a RedHat Linux 6 server.

    I found the jpackage-generic-free repo which has the necessary files I need. And yum install tomcat7 produces a list of packages and starts the install, but fails as the version it finds is missing files on the repo mirrors.

    I see yum reporting back that it will install tomcat packages version 7.0.34-3.jpp6.

    However, when I look at the mirror of the jpackage repo online, the version of the tomcat7 files are 7.0.39-1

    I've tried specifying the version, and running yum clean all and yum list to have it pick up new package definitions from the repo.

    So any ideas how I can force it, or update the repo so it knows the correct version, other than download each of the packages indiviually. There are 11 total its trying to install, and the 5 tomcat packages fail due to this version mismatch?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    What repository is tomcat7 found in? I am running Scientific Linux 6.4 (a clone of RHEL 6.4) and it is at tomcat6 (6.0.24-57). I have the epel, atrpms, and rpmforge repositories installed, as well as the usual ones.
