Question apt-get/synaptic repositories (fedora) ???


I finally discovered synaptic and am very excited to have minimized my dependency hell problems. Now I am finding that my repositories don't always have what I am looking for, or at least not the latest versions. I am currently using the freshrpms.net repositories, and recently found dag, but I would like to use pbone and rpmseek too. Does anyone know what the URI, Distribution, and Section(s) fields should be for these repositories. I've been googling in search of them (and others) without any luck.

I am in search of gimp-2.0 for fedora, which I have found, but without a repository for apt-get I get a long list of dependencies when I try to install it. rrrrrrr!!!!!

Synaptic on FC2?

What program are you looking for? List your repository sites so I can see which ones you have?

This is mine:

[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
retries=20

[base]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/

[updates-released]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/$releasever/$basearch/

#[updates-testing]
#name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Unreleased Updates
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/testing/$releasever/$basearch/

#[development]
#name=Fedora Core $releasever - Development Tree
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/$basearch/

Did you get this yum.conf file from fedorafaq.com, I used it but it still doesn't get what I need, neither does the one that I have. My friend gave me one, and i could get everything, because he had some good repositories in it.

I am trying to locate him!

Can you get Xine from the synaptic you have, and other mp3 codecs?

I'm afraid you've stumbled across a fundamental flaw in the system. Short of compiling it yourself or trying your luck with an FC2 package you cannot install the Gimp2.

Your only options are to either:

a) Upgrade to FC2 at which point you can get packages again. Be warned - fC3 is coming out soon and then you'll have to upgrade again
b) Compile it from source yourself
c) Install gimp-1.3 package which is a late beta of what became gimp2. It should be close enough.

Obviously (c) is not a general solution, it only works for gimp2 in fedora core 1.
