Other sources for dependencies

The following RPM repositories may be useful for finding other dependencies required by EPrints that aren't part of the core RHEL system.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL - Fedora Extras for RHEL.

http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-release/ - Dag Wieer's repository, which covers a very large range of Perl modules plus others.


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/
