when my last visit to rpmfusion.org , i learnt that most of the software packages were available at rpmfusion. But bluefish editor may not be available at rpmfusion , so i went to freshrpms to install it and its repos.
I installed and configured rpmfusion repos . If the bluefish and few other packages , dependency files are available in rpmfusion , then yum wont go to somewhere else to search the packages given in the command. ( I think so) . As a new user of linux , i have to dig more about this... Cant we install softwares as we do in windows ? What makes room for these repos in linux ?
