List of RPM Repos

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.

  1. Yes, the old friend RPM Forge.
  2. RPM Fusion
  3. Livna
  4. FreshRPMS
  5. 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.

Cheers!
