Hi guys,
i'd like to have a place where we can quickly look for the new SL7.x support in 3rd party repos. I'd like to do this because SL 7 is new and not all support it so far and ppl will look for SL7 enhancement like media encoders/decoders etc..

confirmed:
1. ATRpms
2. EPEL
3. ELrepo
4. NUX Dextop
5. IUS community project


For new users - word of caution - use standard common sense while using 3rd party repos and keep them disabled and enable them only for specific SW installs.

If you know more SL7 'positive repos' pls post, i'll update list

cheers :]

Good idea helikaon. I have updated the list here and added [SL6/SL7] to the proper repos.
That way, all references to repos can remain the same.

And I moved Repoforge down on the list to the section "not to use".

Remi also supports EL7.

Nice Red,
thanks a lot :]
Maybe you could make a link from here - i mean maybe something like pinned topic with link to howto section?
My first impulse to look for repo list would be in this subsection ...

cheers :]
