I'm trying to perform the first packstack installation step which is installing rdo and the package cannot be found:

sudo yum install -y
[sudo] password for tromanow:
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
This system is receiving updates from RHN Classic or RHN Satellite.
Setting up Install Process
No package available.
Nothing to do

I'm using RedHat 5.10 which is not officially supported. Is the error caused by the use of incompatible RedHat version? If so, is there any way to enable it for 5.10?

uname -a
Linux contra2 2.6.18-371.6.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Feb 18 11:42:11 EST 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

On RHEL 5.10 I believe you would need to do yum localinstall to install a package from outside of the configured repositories. That said, even if you install rdo-release it only contains pointers to repositories intended for use with RHEL 6, RHEL 7, and Fedora 20. It is likely that you will have significant difficulty installing OpenStack on a RHEL 5.x system.

To emphasize: RHEL 5.10 is probably not going to have many of the dependencies required to get OpenStack up and running. For example, I think OpenStack targets a minimum Python version of 2.6, but RHEL 5.10 only has 2.4.
