RHEL 5 and 3rd Party Repositories.


Over the past few months I have been using Fedora 8 as a testing platform, but have been looking at possibly switching to RHEL 5.

The question I have is about update and installing the tool necessary. Some of the tools consists of;


Is there a repository, or repositories that will work well with RHEL 5 for installing and updating these type of apps?

Thanks in advance.

First posting this question three times in three different forums is considered rude and is somewhat of a pain and waste of bandwidth.

Second yes third party repos just those for fedora exist, in fact some are the same repos, more info here (CentOS == RHEL minus the legal stuff);

By the way as I noted CentOS is a freely available 100% binary clone of RHEL AS+workstation.

zcrxsir88, considering you've been here at LQ for over three years I don't understand why you would do the whole multiple-posts thing. Please refrain from doing this again. Thread closed.
