RPMforge repos for Centos5

Postby lik » Tue Oct 06, 2009 9:03 pm

RPMforge is a collaboration of Dag, Dries, and other packagers. They provide over 4000 packages for CentOS, including mplayer, xmms-mp3, and other popular media tools. It is not part of RedHat or CentOS but is designed to work with these major distributions.

Packages are supplied in RPM format and in most cases are ready to use. Beware that some packages are newer than the official CentOS version and you should not blindly install those packages. Before you replace a CentOS package you should make sure that will not break anything important. In most cases you can revert any mistakes but it is best to avoid the mess.

Download the rpmforge-release package. Choose one of the two links below, depending on your architecture. If you are unsure of which one to use you can check your architecture with the command uname -i.

Code: Select all
rpm -ivh http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/RPMS.dag/rpmforge-release-0.5.1-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

Code: Select all
rpm -ivh http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/x86_64/RPMS.dag/rpmforge-release-0.5.1-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm
