Adding repositories to yum
I've googled, search Fedora yum and every where in between and I can't get a clear understanding on how to add repositories. I need a step by step instruction on how to do.....
I want to add rpmfusion.org, rpmrepo.org, dag.wieers.com/packages and atrpms.net.
I'm following the Bible step by step but it doesn't work.
Each site that offers repositories has step-by-step instructions. For example, rpmfusion lists them here. Adding multiple third party repositories can get you into trouble with conflicts.
Macemoneta is right. Every repository has its own howto. you can google it and i know it's not difficult. Just a game of minutes.
see mjmwired's page
also you DO NOT WHAT TO MIX THESE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"rpmfusion.org, rpmrepo.org, dag.wieers.com/packages and atrpms.net."
YOU WILL KILL YOUR SYSTEM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WHO TOLD YOU TO DO THIS ?
do not !!!!!!!!!!!!!
rpmfusion and rpmfusion-nonfree has almost EVERYTHING
and rpmforge has the rest ( warning use the "yum-protectbase" and "yum-priorities program )
go here for http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration to get the free and non-free for your version of fedora.
you should be done in less than a minute.
Then I add http://rpm.livna.org/ because it lets me add support for viewing DVDs in vlc.
Oh, and I also install flash plugin by installing the adobe repository, and Google's repository to get chrome.
I just wish Skype came from a repository too, but since they update once every 2 years ... ;)
Thank you for your time and energy ............

Thank you all for taking the time to explain and direct me in the right direction. I'm following the Fedora 14 2011 edition Bible. On page 154, configuring yum (/etc/yum.conf)
# This is the default, if you make this bigger yum won't see if the metadata
# is newer on the remote and so you'll "gain" the bandwidth of not having to
# download the new metadata and "pay" for it by yum not having correct
# It is esp. important, to have correct metadata, for distributions like
# Fedora which don't keep old packages around. If you don't like this checking
# interupting your command line usage, it's much better to have something
# manually check the metadata once an hour (yum-updatesd will do this).
# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
"yum.conf" 25L, 826C
I'm being instructed here ^^^ to insert the repos.and I got these repos as recommended by the Bible.
you might want to reed the fedora docs
the book is good - you will NOT need to buy a fedora15 ( 15 is out ) or fdora16 book in 6 months
use the book for learning the basics .Then the docs like the release notes and install and user guide for the everyday things .
