I'm having no luck with

# yum install sl-release-scl

I've been through the repos in /etc/yum.repos.d, and enabled practically everything, but I always get "no package sl-release-scl available".

Any ideas on how to get this? I'm on 6.7 (Carbon).

Thanks.

Current fix:

1 - get

http://linuxsoft.cern.ch/cern/slc61/x86_64/extras/RPMS/sl-release-scl-rh-1-2.slc6.noarch.rpm

and install with 'rpm -Uvh'

2 - get

http://linuxsoft.cern.ch/cern/slc62/i386/yum/extras/sl-release-scl-1-2.slc6.noarch.rpm

and install with 'rpm -Uvh'

Can now 'yum install python27', etc. Not great, though.

The best way to get my attention is over the official lists.
