Install GIMP, ALSA on Oracle linux


I have just set up Oracle enterprise Linux 5.
Unfortunately due to lack of hardware I also want to use this as a main PC.
Oracle enterprise Linux uses yum to install yum to install packages.
However a lot of packages e.g. GIMP and Alsa are not avaliable.

Apart from compiling from source any other I can install these packages?

Yum installs .rpm files, AFAIK so you should be able to grab an rpm for both from somewhere. Though the GIMP website says that "yum install gimp" should work on fedora - so I'm guessing if you add the Fedora repositories to yum then you will be able to install it straight off

Thanks for that. I found out the problem. I went to package manager and for some reason none of the repositories had been enabled. I enabled them and I could install Gimp.


For google purposes in case someone has this problem in the future.

Can not install GIMP on Oracle enterprise linux.
Go to package manager and ensure that all the repositories are ticked.

This is embarrasing but although I could install GIMP.
Some other software I can not find e.g. Idle.
If I try to add the repositories. I entered
http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration

Code:
su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/testing/5/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-5-0.1.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/updates/testing/5/i386/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-5-0.1.noarch.rpm'
I got this error
Code:
