    How to create yum repos in FC3.


    How to create you repo's using gedit. This is intended for our newbies. Dont forget to import the keys.
    Update: I am using: enable=1 and gpgcheck=1 FOR ALL OF THEM

    1. open terminal and become root (su + password)

    2. type: gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/freshrpms.repo

    copy and paste it and CLICK ON SAVE!!:

    [freshrpms]
    name=FreshRPMS-Fresh
    baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms
    enabled=0
    gpgcheck=1

    3. gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/dag.repo

    copy and paste it

    [dag]
    name=Dag
    baseurl=http://apt.sw.be/fedora/$releasever/en/$basearch/dag/
    enabled=0
    gpgcheck=1

    4. gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo

    copy and paste it:

    [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


    5. gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/atrpms.repo

    copy and paste it:

    [atrpms-stable]
    name=ATrpms for Fedora Core $releasever stable
    baseurl=http://apt.atrpms.net/fedora/$releasever/en/$basearch/at-stable
    enabled=0
    gpgcheck=1

    This is my /etc/yum.conf for fedora updates


    [base]
    name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
    #baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/
    mirrorlist=http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/fedora-core-$releasever
    enabled=0
    gpgcheck=1
    [updates-released]
    name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
    #baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/$releasever/$basearch/
    mirrorlist=http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/updates-released-fc$releasever
    enabled=0
    gpgcheck=1

    This is the FC3 GPG-Key: rpm --import /usr/share/doc/fedora-release-3/RPM-GPG-KEY*

    Here are GPG-keys at fedora FAQ

    This is how you use yum to install and uninstall: here

    tchung's at www.fedoranews.org has 2 tutorials:

    1st tutorial
    2nd tutorial

    PLEASE NOTE:
    you can enabled=1 or dislable: enabled=0 and same apply to this line: gpgcheck=1 to gpgcheck=0. Update: I am using: enable=1 and gpgcheck=1 FOR ALL OF THEM

    UPDATE: make some changes to livna repo and I am now using stable, testing, and unstable.

    you actually can't do:
    Code:
    su -
    gedit
    because you will end up with an error saying the screen can't be opened. you actually have to be logged in as root, or use something like "kdesu" or whatever the gnome equivalent is. or do:

    That's why I said "become root".
