*WARNING: Prior to Neo4j 3.2, the rpm distribution of Neo4j was experimental at this time. Use with caution and we advise installing from the linux tarball in production environments. For Neo4j 3.2 please follow the instructions here

Neo4j 3.0 does NOT provide an rpm, and it is unlikely 3.1 will either. This is on the roadmap to be done soon, but presently it is not an official method of installing Neo4j. Also note that the “current” version installed by yum might be a milestone or release candidate, and thus does not support an upgrade to an official GA release. If you do install Neo4j using yum, be sure to follow these instructions to specify the version you would like to install.*

By default, using yum install neo4j allows you to install the current release (which might be a non-GA release). However, if you would like to install an older version, you can specify that.

For reference, the Yum repo is located here: http://yum.neo4j.org/

After following the instructions found in the link above, run the following command as root at the command line:

yum list --show-duplicates neo4j

To get the Enterprise package of Neo4j:

yum list --show-duplicates neo4j-enterprise

Example output:

[root@localhost ~]# yum list --show-duplicates neo4j-enterprise
