Today I had to face much trouble while trying to install vlc player in my Fedora 9. You know, there are a lots of dependencies for installing vlc. The Yum could not resolve (using rpmforge and some other repo) a dependency and it took me more than hour to resolve it. After googling for about one hours, I came to know about RPM Fusion repository. After adding it to my Yum repo, vlc installation is damn easy. That dependency is now quickly and effectively resolved.
That’s why I planned to list a number of Repos so that I and you can use it when needed.
- Yes, the old friend RPM Forge.
- RPM Fusion
- Dribble – Somehow it is dependent to Livna
These repos provide automatic repo configuration rpm. Visit their configuration/using page and download & Install the RPM and the repo is ready to use.
For manual rpm installation, you know rpmfine.net is great always too.
Please keep adding if you know more.
