  1. Public yum server for OEL 6
    And here is an Oracle recipe to add public yum repository for OEL 6.1, with a minor twist if you’re behind a proxy server:

    $ cd /etc/yum.repos.d
    $ sudo -s
    # export http_proxy=your.proxy-ip:80
    # wget  http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-ol6.repo
    # nano public-yum-ol6.repo
    

    Edit:

    [ol6_ga_base]
    name=Oracle Linux 6 GA - $basearch - base
    baseurl=http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL6/0/base/$basearch/
    gpgkey=http://public-yum.oracle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-ol6
    gpgcheck=1
    enabled=1    <-- CHANGE from 0 to 1
