What are good repositories for apt or yum?


I just got my Fedora Core 4 working and it is great! I love it, i even got the ATI 3d acceleration to work. Now what I need is repositories that can work with apt or yum. I already have the linva repositories. Can anyone recomend some good repositories to add? I want alot of apps like xawtv and tuxracer and other stuff. Thax, and can you also show how to add them through a terminal. Thanx.

If you have followed the fedorafaq instructions for yum you will have repos stored in separate files in /etc/yum.repos.d/
Most of them are disabled by default. You can enable/disable any repo by changing the enabled value in given file.

example:
Code:
su -
gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo
Then change the enabled value. 1=enabled, 0=disabled.

or you can enable/disable any repo temporarily for one event

example:
Code:
yum --enablerepo=reponame install application
