Can someone recommend some good apt4rpm repositories?


I found this one "rpm http://apt.sw.be redhat/9/en/i386 dag" from the forum.

"Good" is in the sense of updated, complete and optimized.

Thanks for any good entries.

I find the default repository to be very good.

Are you having issues with this repository?

yup, i tried several apt-get update. But it stalled at "reading package...66%", and the CPU was exhausted at 100%. I had to kill it after 2 minutes. But when I changed to "rpm http://apt.sw.be redhat/9/en/i386 dag", it's working fine.

The entry:
rpm http://download.fedora.us/fedora/ redhat/9/i386 os updates stable

The stable contains many up-to-date packages. I can even get gaim 0.66.
