Hello all. Just wondering what repositories are used / available for SL6? What repositories should we stay away from? I've just reinstalled SL6 so all I have installed right now are epel, sl and sl-security.

Thank you for your time.

Well look at that! My answer may lie in this thread.

Hello Glennzo,

I know there are some packages that don't play well together, like the libmodplug from EPEL and VLC from rpmforge. I just used exclude=libmodplug in my epel repo file. Leigh give some his thoughts on rpmforge and lists the repos he uses in this thread: http://scientificlinuxforum.org/index.php?showtopic=176&st=15

Hope this helps,
PM

I only use four repos: SL, SL-security, RPMforge and a private one (where I put all RPMS I personally collected). By limiting the numbers I maintain a stable system and limit repo-problems.

Thank you guys. This is a big help. This repo stuff gets confusing when you bounce from one rpm based distro to another and back again.

Additional info about RPMforge. Although they say you have to wait , you actually can use their EL6 repo. Just grab the EL6 configuration RPM here.

This topic has been cleaned up: all heated discussions and such have been removed.
Please feel free to post here, but in a mature and objective manner.
Every official repo can be reported here.

Everyone has specific needs and as such will choose a specific repo or repos. Keep this in mind when advising others.
SL is based on RHEL and as such a stable and secure distro. Using 3rd party repos could change that.

The use of any non-SL repo and especially mixing 3rd party repos is entirely up to you.
You do this at your own risk. So please make sure you know what you do.

I am using x86_64. I assume I need both the SL repo and the SL-x86_64 one?

By default your system is configured to use SL and SL-updates.
You do not need to set i386 or x86_64, this is taken care of automatically.

What do you mean by "official repo"?

I wouldn't consider RPMforge, ATrpms, RPM Fusion, ELRepo, PUIAS Linux, Remi Repo official repos.

Only the offical SL repos and EPEL (since it's Fedora/Redhat endorsed) are IMHO official repos.


Anyway I only use the offical SL repos and my personal repo ( http://pkgrepo.linuxtech.net/el6/ ), although most packages in my personal repo are based on carefully reviewed and improved source packages from other third party repos.

To me, an "official" repo is something more than one person creating a repo for his own benefit. With an official repo, care is being taken that the integrety of a system remains intact. All the work is done for the community. So someone who is going to drasticly rebuild SL with his repo (for his own good and not for the good of the community) isn't going to be listed.

And another way to call a repo "official" is because it is well known within the community wink.gif

Right now I am using SL, SL-Security, EPEL, and rpmforge. This is NOT a production box though. It is an experimental / training / personal workstation, and I wanted some of the extended stuff from EPEL and rpmforge. I would NOT use either of those repositories in a production system. (supportability, management concerns...)

Have you found media codecs etc at official SL + EPEL?

Anything major your've not found in official repos?

Also, how does EPEL differ from RHEL repos?
Are RHEL repos official?
In : http://pkgs.org/#centos-6-rhel-6

and
