latest repository for yum


How do you get the latest repository for yum?
I tried the dag page for centos but no matter what I do, when I use yum update rkhunter it says there is no update despite there being a new version.

The Only way to find a repository is Google. Well Hard to search a yum repository.

I have uploaded some repositories for RHEL 5 + here:-

http://ifile.it/16bdgtm/Repositories.zip

It contains following Repositries:-

1. Epel
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#Using_EPEL

2. RPM Forge
http://rpmrepo.org/RPMforge/Using

3. RPM Fusion
http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration

If using different version or distro then check the links provided above

centos packages are always a few months behind, because they need to be properly tested for stability reasons

The other thing to remember is the RHEL/Centos usually does not change the major revision number of most software. Instead it back patches the version it is using to contain the security level of current versions. This is done to maintain a maximum compatibility and stability profile for the system. An easy example of this is the kernel. RHEL/Centos5 started with a 2.6.18 kernel and the last version 5.7(or however high they go) will also have a 2.6.18 based kernel. However the current kernel (2.6.18-128.4.1.el5) is probably closer to a vanilla .26 kernel than it is to a vanilla .18 kernel.

I did this this but still I have the old version of rkhunter 1.2.9 saying it doesn't recognise the OS.
rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/...l5.rf.i386.rpm

DO I need to install it using the old wat? wget then rpm?
