Subject Re: Removing the EPEL Repo prompt question in Installer
Date Tue, 20 Oct 2015 18:03:26 GMT
Hi there Hans-

So you would propose that we still attempt to install the required RPMs if
they are not found already installed? Should we still attempt to download
the EPEL repo if it is not found on the system?

Thanks!

Amanda
