[HDGEM] How to enable the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository on Amazon Linux

Modify /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo. Under the section marked [epel] , change enabled=0 to enabled=1.
To temporarily enable the EPEL 6 repository, use the yum command line option --enablerepo=epel.
Please note that the Amazon Linux AMI repositories are configured with a higher priority than any third-party repositories. The reason for this is because there are several packages that are part of the Amazon Linux AMI that are also in third-party repositories, and we want to make sure that the Amazon Linux AMI version is installed in the default case.
