>>a) build 3.0.22 yourself. It isn't difficult. After all, all of the
source is online.
>>b) download 3.0.22 manually, and manually install it on the customer
>>c) ask RedHat how yum works.

Since where have I asked for anyone to complete any work for me?
I simply asked if anyone had seen this issue before where the baseurl
in the repo is correct, the URL for that baseurl shows
3.0.22 as well as many others.
When I complete the command yum --showduplicates list freeradius it
shows version 3.0.22 in the listing yet when I use yum list and
yum install, all that appears to be available is 3.0.23.
I do not require any or ask for any help with regarding to building
something from scratch. If that is the process I end up
having to use then so be it, and as you state, there is plenty of docs
online to help with that. It is just a process I do not want
to utilise when the yum repo should show 3.0.22 as an available
I know how yum works and how to build a repo, what I have never
completed before is a freeradius + dependencies build from scratch.
That is a learnable process.
So, the question, put in more simple terms is: "Has anyone seen this
issue before and what was the way around it"?
If no-one has seen this issue then that is all good too. My assumption
was that this mailing group could be utilised to ask
such a question. If that is not what this mailing group is about then
maybe it should cease, as I am sure the answer to any
question asked in this group is resolvable with some googling and
Thanks Matthew for the help and Alan for the A) B) and C) options.
