Repos for Fedora 8

Recommended Posts

Finally got Fedora 8 working on my laptop now, so that's cool :)


Just wondering, what repos are available now? I see that freshrpms stopped at Fedora 7 - probably because of linking in with rpmforge. So, livna seems to be the only one covering Fedora 8 now, and I don't see any mention of Fedora 8 in rpmforge.


What's everyone else using? (all you Fedora users out there).

I checked freshrpms, but:




here it lists only for Fedora 7. Unless that's not important? :unsure:


Probably I'll just add the livna for now. I have a feeling that freshrpms will stop soon because it will be a part of rpmforge along with dag's and dries rpms as well.

OK. I'm using livna now since I couldn't find anything else, and heard that atrpms was a little unstable and could cause problems. I used to use freshrpms before, and removed livna because the two together were giving me a headache and dependency problem when it was trying to install packages from both repos :)


Livna will do, but I hear from the Fedora Forum that there will be a merger of repos for Fedora 9 - we shall see.

Switched to freshrpms as livna didn't have a package I wanted. The link on freshrpms page is for Fedora 7 for installing the package, but you can get it for version 8 by modifying the url. I did it like this:


rpm -Uvh http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/fedora/linux/8/freshrpms-release/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm


The original url I copied from the webpage was:




However, I had to remove the livna packages I had installed first to stop dependency problems when I removed the livna repo before adding freshrpms:


rpm -e `rpm -qa | grep lvn`


parses the results from the rpm -qa with all lvn rpms which belong to livna and then removes them.
