CentOS 6 Repositories: Getting the Packages You Need

Nov 10, 2011, 11:03 (2 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Andrew Weber for this link. ]

"The primary reason for adding these repositories is that neither the CentOS repository nor the rpmforge repository contain the same packages that were available in CentOS 5.x. There is some serious lag time which will cripple your ability to move to CentOS 6. Therefore, in order to gain access to all of the necessary packages you will need to add these two repositories. Unfortunately, this is an unsatisfactory solution as the more repositories you add the greater the chance you will have package conflicts. At this point in time however, this cannot be avoided. In order to minimize the impact of using multiple repositories it is important to use yum-priorities."
