    downloading free software for fedora 3


    hi,
    anyone know of a good repository for free software other than sourceforge.net to download software for fedora 3.

    so who decides as to what/which software goes into the automatic package downloader that comes with fedora project. what are the criteria for becoming part of those packages.

    also, so i am kind of confused. Does linux software works on all distributions of linux or some are only geared towards certain distributions.

    i just google whatever package i need.

    most programmers make different packages for the respective distros (ie rpm for fedora/rh, deb for debian based distros and what not.)

    but you can always download the source code for a package and configure it yourself
