(1) Many of us on 5.6 have installed to /etc/yum.repos.d an extra file
for an extra, probably temporary, new repository called 'CR'.  Unsure
what CR means but it might be 'Continuous Revision'. 

(2) You write you are on 5.5 so I am unsure whether the 'CR' repo is
also for you. No doubt others will enlighten us.

(3) The contents of the CR repo are (the file name is your own choice):-

# CentOS-CR.repo
# The continuous release  ( CR ) repository contains rpms from the
# next point release of CentOS, which isnt itself released as yet.
# Look at http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR
# for more details about how this repository works and what users 
# should expect to see included / excluded

name=CentOS-$releasever - CR

(4) As you will notice, in the file is a link for further information.

(5) If this file is for your 5.5, then install it then do a

	yum update 

and you should see things being installed.
