I didn't get this rpm using yum, but by manually downloading it. Yum is configured properly:

[vmarko at sith ~]$ yum repolist
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
repo id              repo name                                 status
addons               CentOS-5 - Addons                         enabled
adobe-linux-i386     Adobe Systems Incorporated                enabled
base                 CentOS-5 - Base                           enabled

So yum does not help here, or I need another repository which has djvulibre package for CentOS 5.2, or some other way to be able to view djvu files. Please give some advise on this.

I am aware of this. In general I prefer using yum over any other option, but it seems I am out of usual options here, so I've tried the less viable ones (and was not successful).
Best, :-)
