        The EPEL  repository has older versions of  postgis 
(1.3.2)/mapserver (4.10) and gdal (1.42).  If you want newer versions you 
will need to look elsewhere.

[OSGeo-Discuss] Looking for Yum or RPM Site for GIS Suite for   Centos 5.5

I hope this is the appropriate place for this general-GIS software 
question. Apologies if this isn't it.

I'm looking for a yum repo or an rpm download site for the following set 
of GIS packages for a machine running Centos 5.5:
GDAL / OGR tools
PHP Mapscript
Open Layers
Quantum GIS

I'd like to have PostGIS compiled with at least these switches or their 
equivalent built in:

GDAL should have at least these switches set:

  --with-proj=/usr/local/ \
  --with-geos=/usr/local/bin/geos-config \
  --with-ogr=/usr/local/bin/gdal-config \
  --with-gdal=/usr/local/bin/gdal-config \
  --with-postgis=/usr/local/pgsql/bin/pg_config \
  --with-wfs \
  --with-wcs \
  --with-wmsclient \
  --with-wfsclient \
  --with-curl-config=/usr/bin/curl-config \
  --with-agg=/usr/local/src/agg --with-freetype \

I used to just compile these from source, but my sysAdminis recommends 
that whenever possible, to use rpms to take advantage of yum's or rpm's 
file management. and inventory capabilities. Since this is a brand new 
machine, I'd like to follow the recommendations of people who know more 
than I do, whenever I can.

So, does any know if there's a one-stop yum repository or rpm site where 
I can get everything as integrated, compatible rpms ?
