Specify the problem you are facing.

It is quiet easy to create repo in redhat

edit the /etc/yum.conf and append the following lines

name=Extra Fedora rpms dries - $releasever - $basearch

this will add dries repo..

Or you can create a separate file with the same content and put it in /etc/yum.repos.d/

Hi, Welcome to LQ!

LQ has a fantastic search function that may save you time waiting for an answer to a popular question.

With over 3 million posts to search it's possible the answer has been given.
Is that a local or remote rpm(?) Package repository?

Try this link, Fedora is very similar to RedHat, so that tutorial link may help you... (this link is listed at the bottom part of this page...)

links to...

I have written a tutorial for Mandriva 2010.1, you can find it here...

Regards Glenn
