Hello,

I really dont know if this is the right place to post something like this but... here it goes.

I just installed most of the repos (enabled=0) and gathered some statistics. Maybe these numbers are of some help to someone so that he/she can decide what repo to install or for some package what repo to use.

I also attach full list of packages for every repo.

Commands used to gather info were the following e.g for epel

CODE
# To gather packages from specific repo
sudo yum --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo="epel" list available > ~<username>/Desktop/epel_packages;

# To list all repos and # of packages
find /<username>/Desktop/*packages -print0 | xargs -0 wc -l


and the results are :

3745 ./rpmforge_packages
323 ./rpmforge-extras_packages
2930 ./atrpms_packages
23 ./rpmfusion-nonfree_packages
142 ./rpmfusion-free_packages
91 ./elrepo_packages
6458 ./epel_packages
13716 total

...so glad to have SL by my side


EDIT: I cant find out how to attach the full lists
EDIT2: I found out how i should do it. Not very handy but here they are

http://sharetext.org/7D0J RPMFORGE
http://sharetext.org/ZEzU RPMFORGE-EXTRAS
http://sharetext.org/PMpf ATRPMS
http://sharetext.org/RxyQ RPMFUSION-NONFREE
http://sharetext.org/LOYV RPMFUSION-FREE
http://sharetext.org/4h90 ELREPO
http://sharetext.org/hKQd EPEL

If files are saved locally (named e.g <repo>_packages then someone can search for a specific package with
CODE

cat ./*packages | grep ffmpeg


to find what repos provide the package

PS... I didn't have too much work today...

You forgot the linuxtech repos. wink.gif (and a few others).

Also while quantity (=choice) counts, what counts even more is to find the right package for someone's individual needs (and quality of packages counts too).

Also remember the above repos are pretty much an either/or choice, you can't mix atrpms, rpmforge and epel!

(can be used together with EPEL and ELRepo repositories) - repository mirror: http://linuxsoft.cern.ch/linuxtech/el6/

you are absolutely right! http://th166.photobucket.com/albums/u117/rdshear/Smiley%20Faces/th_smiley-face-thumbs-up.gif

my real intention was to just find out what repos provide a specific package.
I now want to install mp3 support to my SL 6.3 and I found out that rpmforge has to be my choice... but I want EPEL too

... as far as i know the two of them together are fighting each one to conquer my installation... what do you suggest about this issue?

EDIT: I just saw that your repo is specialized in audio/video http://www.madjacksports.com/forum/images/smilies/facepalm.gif

rpmforge will give you mp3 codecs but IMHO rpmforge has become a bit stale, the versions of their packages are mostly from 2 years ago (of course if you don't care about recent versions then that's not a problem).

Well, my repo is a possibility for you but of course it has a smaller choice of packages. What you might like is that I recently decided to focus on making my repo as compatible as possible with Epel as IMHO Epel is the best repo out of the 3 big repos (epel, rmpforge, atrpms).
Currently it's mostly but not completely compatible, so should you choose to use the Linuxtech repo together with Epel then please let me know about any conflicts you discover so I can fix them.
