Add the repository key:

rpm -ivh

... the RHEL updates repository:

rpm -ivh

... the EPrints repository:

rpm -ivh

Upgrade your XML libraries:

yum upgrade libxml2 libxslt perl-XML-LibXML perl-XML-LibXSLT

Install EPrints 3:

yum install eprints3


If you're using SELinux on your server you will need to give Apache read/write access to the documents directory for all repositories you create:

chcon -R -h -t httpd_sys_script_rw_t /opt/eprints3/archives/[repoid]/documents/
