For the most part yum (and package management in Fedora) works just fine. The only problem
I've had is when you specify multiple repositories containing packages with conflicting names
or dependencies. Even then, it's usually not too much work to sort out the confusion. In general,
don't use a lot of uncoordinated repositories.

This is what I get when I run yum install tomcat5 from the command line:

Of course, the original poster's package list may be different, since it depends on what is
already installed on the system.
For me it's much easier to download the appropriate compressed jar file from
I install it somewhere in my home directory, so I can modify at will without having to drop
into root.

That works great for development and testing.

. . . . just my two cents.
