yum安装时出现:Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: epel. Please verify its path and try again


在CentOS 6.3 x86_64下安装php-mcrypt的时候出现了问题:Error: Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: epel. Please verify its path and try again,需要安装epel源。

解决方法: 一句话:把/etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo,文件第3行注释去掉,把第四行注释掉。具体如下:

打开/etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo,将

  1. [epel]

  2. name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - $basearch

  3. #baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/$basearch

  4. mirrorlist=https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=epel-6&arch=$basearch

修改为

  1. [epel]

  2. name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - $basearch

  3. baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/$basearch

  4. #mirrorlist=https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=epel-6&arch=$basearch
