Which Repositories I should Have

Hello all,

I was wondering if some one could tell me if these are the correct repo I should have for my laptop. When I ran yumex I notice all these were check. i kind of remember in fc5 i had less. If someone could help me out or share with me which repo they are using or which ones I should have it would be great.

1. Core = fedora-core.repo
2. dries = dries.repo
3. extras, = fedora-extra.repo
4. flash = flash.repo
5. jpackage-fedora = jpackage.repo
6. jpackage-generic = jpackage.repo
7. livna = livna.repo
8. macromedia = macromedia.repo
9. updates = fedora-update.repo

I am using:

FC6 Core
FC6 Updates
FC6 Extras

I guess if you were developing java stuff you would want the jpackage (I think that's what it's for), flash & macromedia are probably only good for one package, you may want to include dries. The more you have the longer it takes to check for updates and available packages so too many is not so good. But you should definitely have Livna.

I use the default Fedora Core plus livna and freshrpms. You shouldn't enable too many repos because you can end up with package conflicts.
