View Full Version : extras vs. stable

12th November 2004, 03:54 PM
Under FEdora Core 1 and 2, there were repositories labeled as "stable". (You can find them at http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/1/$ARCH/RPMS.stable/ and http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/2/i386/RPMS.stable/.) Both of them had a large amount of software. Under Fedora Core 3, that repository is no longer there. Instead, there is what seems to be an "extras" repository located at http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/3/i386/RPMS.extras/. However there is nothing inside of this repository. Will this repository get populated at a later time? What should I do if I would like to get the software that was located in the "stable" repositories?

Thanks all.

(Why is this thread in Fedora Development? :eek: Moved somewhere more relevant)

My apologies. I did not think about where the post was going to go. I must have thought the computer would read my mind or something. :o Must not post too early in the morning...

Supposedly Fedora is Core and Fedora extras provides alternatives or extra software. Eventually there should be something there, probably most of the stuff from the old stable.
