Adding repositories to YUM?

I just installed the lateest version of YDL on my G4. I'm trying to install from source Stellarium, but cant get it to install, probably because of dependences, especially one called "cmake". How do I add repositories to YUM? And how do I get YUM to automatically install dependencies?

Yum does automatically install dependencies, if it only can find them for you. Add reposities by adding new files to /etc/yum.repos.d (or equivalent; I can't remember exactly). There are clear text files, one per reposity; check what they look like and create your own, or simply search for a reposity rpm package and install it, and it adds the reposity files for you.
