Migrate EPEL repo instructions to the correct page

Michal Ludvig's RPM repos

Michal Ludvig maintains OpenVPN "unstable / development" RPM repositories for Suse, Redhat, CentOS and Fedora. Here's a simple "config wizard" with install instructions for different distros:

Alternatively you can go directly to the repository and find your way around:

These RPMs are for testing only, not for production. Their author has tested them on RHEL 5, CentOS 6 and OpenSuse? 11.4 but YMMV, but no guarantees of proper functioning is given.

EPEL repository

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux and clones, follow the Fedora EPEL guide on how to install the EPEL repository. Scientific Linux have a helper packages already handy which can be installed using yum install yum-conf-epel. CentOS might have a similar package too. Fedora has recent enough OpenVPN version in its default repositories so setting up EPEL is not required.

Once the repository is setup installing OpenVPN is easy:

   [root@host:~]# yum install openvpn

On Fedora releases using dnf, it is equally simple:

   [root@host:~]# dnf install openvpn

All packages in the Fedora repositories are signed by the official Fedora keys.
