Please show the output from the command :
ls /etc/yum.repos.d/

And also tell if you have Redhat support.
Redhat EL is not free, and you will have to pay
to set up a Redhat.repo .
Without it, you can't use any other repo's.

But you can use the free copy of Redhat EL = CentOS 5.4 .

Howto make rpmforge available and how to check it.

Hi,
the output is :

ls /etc/yum.repos.d/
adobe-linux-i386.repo epel-testing.repo rhel-debuginfo.repo rpmfusion-free-updates.repo rpmfusion-nonfree-updates.repo
epel.repo mirrors-rpmforge rpmforge.repo rpmfusion-free-updates-testing.repo rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing.repo
[root@logicproPC yum.repos.d]#

What does this mean ??? None of these packages can be verified. Neither by yum list .... nor by rpm -q ... .

Yes, I have RedHat support. I just installed yum-protectbase.

Kind regards

'epel.repo', 'rpmforge.repo' etc.

Those are files with a link to a repository,
which can supply extra packages.

The rpmfusion.repo is incomplete,
.. the file rpmfusion.repo seems missing ?


But first : Which package(s) do you want to install ?
Please do this command :
# yum list available > yum.list.available.txt
.. which will create a text file in /home/'username'/
.. with all the packages, you can install.
The list has a text describing the repo name, so please
have a look, to see if rpmforge appears.

Howto make rpmforge available and how to check it.

Is rpmforge a repository or a package ???????????????????????????

The command rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/...l5.rf.i386.rpm tells me, that the
package rpmforge has already been installed.

I want to install mplayer, but first of all, I want to make rpmforge available on my notebook.

How can I find out whether it is installed or not ????????????

Regards
O.Eggert

All installed rpms can be checked with
rpm -qa | grep <name> ( or part of name )
rpm -qa | grep rpmforge
.. will show that the repo is installed.

Creating a new list with all packages and repo names :
1) su
2) yum list all > my.list.text
3) exit

.. And after the above is done :
grep rpmforge my.list.text
.. will list all "rpmforge" packages
.....
