I added the EPEL repository as instructed.
A yum repolist displays:
epel Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 5 - enabled
rhel-i386-server-5 None enabled
rhel-i386-server-vt- None enabled
rhn-tools-rhel-i386- None enabled
I performed “yum check-update libmcrypt” command but it appears that epel was not included in the search

What do I need to do to have yum use the epel repository? Is there a way to tell yum to only search epel for a specific package?
