FC3: Adding Repositories for Yum

There are several third-party apt and yum repositories for Fedora that provide additional software and some provide support for playing DVDs and MP3 files. Some of these are just the mirrors of Official Fedora Core 3 project site.

Let us configure 3 of such mirrors: FreshRPMS, livna and atrpms.

Since we use package verification using GPG (default setup for Yum), we need to import the GPG keys of the respective repositories. We can do that by,

#> rpm --import http://freshrpms.net/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.txt
#> rpm --import http://rpm.livna.org/RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEY-x86_64
#> rpm --import http://rpm.livna.org/RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEY-i386
#> rpm --import http://atrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms

Now, we need to setup the repositories for yum to download from. The repo configuration files are located in /etc/yum.repos.d.

FreshRPMS

create /etc/yum.repos.d/freshrpms.repo, with the following entries:

[freshrpms]
name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - freshrpms
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms
gpgcheck=1

Livna

create /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo, with the following entries:

[livna-stable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.stable
gpgcheck=1

[livna-unstable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (unstable)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.unstable
gpgcheck=1

[livna-testing]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (testing)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.testing
gpgcheck=1

ATRPMS

create /etc/yum.repos.d/atrpms.repo, with the following entries:

[at-stable]
name=ATrpms for Fedora Core $releasever stable
baseurl=http://apt.atrpms.net/fedora/$releasever/en/$basearch/at-stable

[at-good]
name=ATrpms for Fedora Core $releasever good
baseurl=http://apt.atrpms.net/fedora/$releasever/en/$basearch/at-good

[at-testing]
name=ATrpms for Fedora Core $releasever testing
baseurl=http://apt.atrpms.net/fedora/$releasever/en/$basearch/at-testing

[at-bleeding]
name=ATrpms for Fedora Core $releasever bleeding
baseurl=http://apt.atrpms.net/fedora/$releasever/en/$basearch/at-bleeding

Now that the entries are done, you can use yum to install/upgrade packages.
