Installing RPMForge repositories on CentOS

By default CentOS Yum has a pretty poor selection of packages compared to something like Debian. So it can be a good idea to add RPMForge to get access to more up to date packages.

cat /etc/redhat-release
uname -a

Now choose the appropriate repository for the CentOs version and architecture:

Install the repo:

rpm --import
rpm -K rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.*.rpm
rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

You should now have access to a heap more packages via Yum.
