this is not urgent for any of the voluntary members of LQ.org. Please don't demand priority attention here. Instead, use a title that relates to the question you have, to help others help you faster.

If you're unclear what the instructiosn mean, it means you'd, as root, create a new text file at that location, in vi, emacs, gedit or whatever other text editor you prefer, and put that contents inside it, and save it.

solution? because it has an equal to sign?

what this is, is a file which contains the name, url and option to check for gpgkey before installing for a repository called SOGo

If it's asking you to do anything, It's asking you to create a file called "/etc/yum.repos.d/inverse.repo" with the above content in it, starting with "[SOGo]". Once you do that you will be able to install whatever software that this repository will allow you to install. You will need root access and a text editor to create that file although the text editor you choose to use is up to you.

dude's not replied, no need to repeat what he's already been told when he seems unlikely to come back.

It's something to do. If you don't want me to reply then lock the thread.

I'm on the night shift and bored so I look for threads to reply to. You're a moderator so I assume you can lock the thread.
