trouble installing beryl in FC5

I am having a bit of trouble installing beryl in FC5. I have the "extras" yum repo enabled but it can't find beryl-kde or beryl-gnome in the beryl extras repo. But several places say that

yum install beryl-kde
should work fine. Is there some trick to finding beryl in the Fedora extras repo? I just get:

# yum install beryl-kde
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
core                                                                 [1/4]
updates                                                              [2/4]
freshrpms                                                            [3/4]
extras                                                               [4/4]
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: beryl-kde
Nothing to do
Can anyone else see the beryl-kde or beryl-gnome in the extras listing. I have tried:

yum list beryl*
and it returns nothing. I have the following settings in my fedora-extras.repo file:

name=Fedora Extras $releasever - $basearch

Yup, upgrade to FC6.

Okay, with some help from others and this post:


I see that beryl is NOT in the extras list for Fedora Core 5. It's only in the list for Fedora Core 6 having perused the list here:


I guess I'll have to upgrade to FC6 if I want to use the latest beryl but it seems there's a pretty good how-to for doing that here:
