Repo for Rhel 7.7


There is an OS Rhel 7.7. An expanded set of packages is required. It can be obtained by a paid subscription, or you can use CentOS repositories at your own risk. Before that, I did and there were no problems, but at some point I did yum update and after the changes made, Rhel flew. I began to study the issue and the thought arose instead of using the CentOS repository to use Fedora repositories, namely the RPM Fusion repository, since this product is essentially closer to Redhat. Can I somehow appreciate this idea? Thanks in advance.

What exactly is your question? Whether RPMFusion is supported on RHEL? Yes, depending on your definition of "supported":
Quote:
That software is provided as precompiled RPMs for all current Fedora versions and current Red Hat Enterprise Linux or clones versions.
Whether RPM Fusion is better than Centos repositories? Hardly. It contains software that is not distributed by RHEL, Centos or Fedora, thus it is a complement, not a replacement.

I think you are wrong. The RPM Fusion web site starts with this sentence:
Quote:
RPM Fusion provides software that the Fedora Project or Red Hat doesn't want to ship.
That doesn't sound close at all.

Assuming you do not have budget for RHEL subscription, and so instead of going about it this way, let me ask...
Why not use CentOS or Fedora as your OS (instead of RHEL)?

Is that good or bad?

As stated, RHEL is based on Fedora i.e RHEL 7 is based on Fedora 19. CentOS is functionally compatible with RHEL. If you want to use RHEL and not pay, install CentOS.

@georgekup : Welcome to LQ.

The free version of RHEL 7 is CentOS 7.
The CentOS repo's is the choice. No risk at all !
( RPM Fusion is Music players etc. extra, no general packages.)
