    Fedorafaq.org is a good site for information on yum and its repositories (it also gives you some repositories to use too and how to make yum use them)

    I found a site that explains how to set a repository in the yum.conf file and I also found a repository. I'm going to try it tommorow. Wish me luck .

    Well I wrote a yum.conf file and a .repo file. Are will they screw up my comp if I use yum with them?

    yum.conf :

    [main]
    cachedir=/var/cache/yum
    reposdir=/etc/yum.repos.d
    debuglevel=2
    logfile=/var/log/yum.log
    pkgpolicy=newest
    distroverpkg=redhat-release
    tolerant=0
    exactarch=1
    retries=20
    obsoletes=1
    gpgcheck=0
    assumeyes=0
    installonlypkgs='kernel, kernel-smp, kernel-bigmem, kerne-enter-prise, kernel-debug, kernel-unsupported'
    showdupesfromrepos=0
    overwrite_groups=0
    diskspacecheck=1

    my .repo:

    [base]
    repositoryid=stanford baseurl=ftp://mirror.stanford.edu/pub/mirrors/fedora/linux/core/updates/3/i386/
    enabled=1

    4 .repo files already were in the yum.repos.d folder. One of them seems to be a normal .repo file. These are the other ones :

    [development]
    name=Fedora Core $releasever - Development Tree
    #baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/$basearch/
    mirrorlist=http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/fedora-core-rawhide
    enabled=0

    [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=1
    gpgcheck=1

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

    What should I do with these files?
