Hi Experts,

Is it possible to add RHEL5 repository to RHEL6, as there are some old packages I need to install under RHEL6?

    It is not recommended to add old version repository into new version.
    You will encounter dependency conflict issue most of time.
    It would be better add fedora 13 (which RHEL 6 branch from ) or rpmforge repository and install the packages which are built for el6.
