Apt / Yum Repositories?

Greetings everyone,

I have downloaded and installed Fedora (Severn) on one of my partitions... I was wondering if anyone can help me figure out where I should tell apt / yum to get updates from.

The Fedora page says I can update it from or from it's mirrors.

Is this what I should put in my apt sources.list?

Are there any other repositories that you would recommend?

Thanks in advance...

Check out:

I would recommend you take out the rawhide repository as soon as Fedora Core 1 (Yarrow) will be released (in a few days). Rawhide is the development stream, not the official updates stream.

The primary update repositories are listed in the default yum.conf file as included with yum-2.0.4-2.

Be sure to look for nearby mirrors of repositories you use.
