Adding Additional RPM sites to yum search

Filed under: Linux — cangione @ 9:33 am

To add additional sites that have RPMs for Linux:

1) Add the site to the yum config file under /etc/yum.conf

Example:

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

2) Find the sites public signing key

Example:

rpm --import http://ATrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms

Now when you do a yum install or update that site is added to sites
searched for RPMs. A note, be very careful with sites that have RPMs at
what’s called RPMS.at-bleeding since these tend to be the raw
development builds and can lead to “bad things”…..
