If I remember correctly enable=0 means that repo is turned off.

Hi,

lazlow is correct. In the .repo file give `enabled=1` which will enable your repository.

Regards,

Kurian Thayil.

you can use the --enablerepo=repoidglob option:
Quote:
yum --enablerepo=Fedora install rdesktop
This way you don't have to manually change the enable flag in the repo file.
