This is simple steps to follow when you install the OVM CLI on fresh installed OVM.
1. add oracle public yum server
# wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-el5.repo
(set http_proxy when it's needed. ex. export http_proxy=http://localhost:80)
2. edit public-yum-el5.repo
search for el5_addons entry. there are two addons, one is el_5addons, and another one is el5_oracle_addons. change the value of enabled from 0 to 1 to enable the both entries.
3. install ovmcli
# yum install ovmcli
cool thing about yum is that it handles the dependencies automatically, so you would easily avoid the possible hassles.
