    YUM - Adding to repository list?

    Okay I just recently got my wireless internet working(today) and i've been messing around with YUM trying to get some packages for applications I have downloaded. Currently my repository list only contains: core, extras, and updates. Is there a way to expand this list to have access to say development, utilites, etc...?

    Any information will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    The first thing I do when I finished installing Fedora (and having a working Internet connection...) is going to http://rpm.livna.org/ and http://freshrpms.net/ and install their repostories. I heard about an other repo called 'rpm forge', but I am not sure it is ready for FC5 already.

    Thanks for the help, I ended up getting livna and then found out about yumex which helped out a bunch.

    For your future needs, it's good to also add the rpmforge group that Stanton Finley mentions. Since you've settled on Livna, just set the rpmforge group as 'enabled=0' instead of 'enabled=1'. That way, they won't be checked for updates but when you find a program that is only listed with them, you can still check them in Yumex or use 'yum --enablerepo=dries (or whatever) install packagename' .
