Comprehensive list of centos-compatible yum repositories

0 votes

I installed CentOS 6.4 on a partition on my computer a few days ago, and I'm trying to equip it with the software i think i need.

For example, i need, or i think i need, a couple of gnustep programs for uploading images from my digital camera (the programs being openapp and

I imagine that these are old enough that they must surely exist in rpms somewhere.

But i apparently don't know how to google around sufficiently well to locate a repository that contains them, or even that contains packages that i know exist as rpms. For example: i'm certain that an rpm exists for
a package called gnustep-make, because its name popped up on But if i try 'sudo yum install gnustep-make' i get 'No package gnustep-make available.'
So that clearly means that i don't have enough repositories configured for use.

So, i'd be grateful for any pointers to a list of CentOS-compatible repositories that i can put in the yum configuration (/etc/yum.repos.d or elsewhere).

First, try yum list gnu*
Second, check /etc/yum.repos.d - if you don't have it, you should install epel, which might have some that you're looking for, and rpmfusion, both free and non-free, and try the yum list again.

These repos may not have the software you want, but they're the currently documented ones. Others may exist that don't show up on that page.

I want to understand the best practice of organizing the GIT repositories. Let's say:
1. We are a large bank with many line of businesses and tons of application.
2. Each LOB has a large number of applications.

How many repositories shall I use? How do we organize the applications inside one repository? Any reference?

I have git version 1.8.4.msysgit.0 installed. If I run this as a daemon, where are the repositories located? (i.e. where do i do a mkdir foo.git; cd foo.git; git init --bare?)

How do I change where the (server) repositories live?

Where does dnf keep its repo configuration, or does it use /etc/yum.repo.d? Which I see is still there. As I want to change it to

Wonder how's the relationship between the centos 6's main OS/ repository and redhat 6's repositories. Let's say, Redhat 6 seperate RPMs into a series of repos like:

redhat-6-server ##(base redhat 6 OS/)

Does centos 6 merge all the redhat 6 repos into one big repository? or still leave out some minor/functional ones? If the second is true, then it will be great if we can find the repo mapping link between Redhat 6 and centos 6.
