RPM files for RHEL6


Hi Friends,

I am having an unregistered RHEL6 machine, and want to use rpm packages from internet. Anyone have idea of any good rpm files repository?

The midnight nitpicker strikes!!--CentOS is not a RedHat distro---it is a CLONE of RHEL.

Regardless--for the OP: Waste of time to try and maintain RHEL without registering, Get CentOS or Fedora if you reallu must have a Red hat type system.

With CentOS you can get the security bug fixes. Red Hat are not going to let you download these if you haven't paid!
Read this page for guidance on which extra repositories you might want:
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalRes...epositories%29
If you do need more, you must set priorities
http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities
Make CentOS 1, EPEL 2, and the rest 3, 4, etc.

Thanks for correcting me . Then, I 'think' CentOS is Fedora Distro?. Is that correct?

RHEL is open source, and CentOS and Scientific Linux have recompiled the source code and added features of their own. They just can't call it RHEL because RHEL is trademarked. If you like RHEL, then CentOS or Scientific Linux may just be what you are looking for. Plus, you will get updates and community support which you will not get for an unregistered RHEL.
