Repo containing "keychain" and "mplayer" packages?


I'm new to CentOS and I can't find several packages that I've come to depend on, including keychain and mplayer.

Are there any repos anywhere that have them?

Search (Google or DuckDuckGo) for EPEL repo for instructions on how to add it to CentOS.

This link MAY help http://www.elinuxbook.com/install-mplayer-in-linux/

There are a couple of packages called "keychain" in different environments, but if you mean the access control script to assist with SSH connections [url]https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/ssh-passwordless-login-with-keychain-for-scripts/[/url may help.

PS: neither of these took me more than 15 seconds to find. Learn to use your search engines and you find power!

Saying that indicates you're awfully quick to assume that I'm ignorant.

I've already done these commands, which made a bunch of stuff available, but neither package mentioned is available:
Code:
sudo yum --enablerepo=extras install centos-release-scl
sudo yum --enablerepo=extras install epel-release
sudo rpm --import https://www.elrepo.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-elrepo.org
sudo rpm -Uvh https://www.elrepo.org/elrepo-release-7.0-3.el7.elrepo.noarch.rpm
Note that I didn't ask how to install either package independent of a CentOS repo. (I've done that in years past.) My question specifically asked about a CentOS repo. I suspect these common packages ARE available in some repo but I just haven't found it or enabled it correctly. Thus the question.

In your haste to google, did you first check yum to see if you have access to them in a repo?

It seems that you did not check, or did not understand, the pages I liked you to. Each of them installed the described software by first adding a REPO that is compatible with RHEL and CENTOS specifically. In one case was NOT among the repos you mention in your code block above. Please have another look and see if there is something there that will help.

PS: I am currently running Q4OS, and find "mplayer2" and "keychain" in my software lists. My sources include all of the Jessie regular, stable, backports, including contrib and non-free. While Debian has a huge software base that does outstrip the RHEL and CentOS options,these are well established packages that I would expect to install in CentOS easily. Do not give up easily.

wpeckham is correct, you may also need to add the 'Nux Dextop' repo as well to get mplayer. I have it installed on my CentOS 7 installation.

Not sure you should use those repo's? You might want to look at this: https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalRe...s/Repositories

Also, comments like these left me a little queasy. (And I'm even ignoring the five in the "Known Problem Repositories" category.) The main reason I wanted to move to CentOS is because I want stability and am willing to give up the latest developments.

While it does say in that same link I give you; "Recent and extremely limited support for CentOS 7 has been added" (for the RPM Fusion repo), I did not know that repo was supported for CentOS 7.

So now you have me wondering as well...

Some of the EXTRA repos have been problematic in the past, and using them has replaced base packages of the same name causing issues. The major ones, including EPEL, are very careful to name their packages so that they are different from the ones in the core repos. In other words, you will never replace core packages with ones from these extra repos unless you choose to do so and manually request the packages to accomplish that goal.

There are repos that support only a limited selection of packages for one particular purpose or application, and those also have no conflict with the core packages EXCEPT when it comes to the application they exist to provide.
