Cool Fuse on RedHat


Hi guys,
I'm trying to install Fuse on RedHat but yum always returns "No packages found" message.
Can anyone guide me about the yum repository structure on Redhat? Or in other words, where to place packages so yum can find them for installation.

On CentOS everything went as planned but RH gives me a headache....

Thx in advance!

RHEL is a commercial variant so its official repositories only include those things supported by RedHat.

CentOS is a binary recompile of RHEL source. However it also has additional repositories for other things that aren't in RHEL.

You can add repositories to RHEL that aren't supported by RedHat for example the EPEL. The link here discusses use of EPEL:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#Using_EPEL

Note that using such 3rd party repositories makes it more likely that RedHat might not support you if you have an issue. Many folks use such things for various reasons but you must make sure you understand which items come from the 3rd party and which don't. For that reason I don't setup such repositories but instead download any packages I can't get from RH official repositories and use rpm rather than yum to install them. This insures I only install what I meant to and don't replace RH supported packages by accident.

If support isn't important then you might be better off converting to CentOS from RHEL.

Fuse is definitely in CentOS. Since it's in the actual distribution, not one of the other repositories, I'm surprised it's not in Red Hat.

please post the FULL commands you are using for this

did you search for it first ( to make sure of no typos)
Code:
su -
yum search fuse
also it is RECOMMENDED that you search the RHN knowledge base for "fuse"
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/search
for the red hat instructions

Fuse packages are there in RHEL5 repositories without using EPEL:

Code:
yum list fuse*
Returns the following on a RHEL 5.4 box I checked:

Loaded plugins: downloadonly, rhnplugin, security
mod-pagespeed | 951 B 00:00
Available Packages
fuse.x86_64 2.7.4-8.el5 rhel-x86_64-server-5
fuse-devel.i386 2.7.4-8.el5 rhel-x86_64-server-5
fuse-devel.x86_64 2.7.4-8.el5 rhel-x86_64-server-5
fuse-libs.i386 2.7.4-8.el5 rhel-x86_64-server-5
fuse-libs.x86_64 2.7.4-8.el5 rhel-x86_64-server-5

Or you can download the fuse package from this website:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3?stat...fuse&srodzaj=3

and install it.
