    Default Fedora Core 2 RPM repository

    Spry has a repository of pre-compiled Fedora Core 2 RPMS available at:

    ftp://66.249.6.114/linux/fedora/2/Fedora/RPMS/

    You can download and install utilities that you would like on your server from that location.

    YUM is an excellent package manager for fedora. There's a good FAQ on Dag Wieers' website. You may wish to add some other repositories in addition to that listed above. For example here is my /etc/yum.conf file:
    Code:
    [main]
    cachedir=/var/cache/yum
    debuglevel=2
    logfile=/var/log/yum.log
    pkgpolicy=newest
    distroverpkg=redhat-release
    tolerant=1
    exactarch=1
    retries=20
    
    [base]
    name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
    baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/
    
    [updates-released]
    name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
    baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/$releasever/$basearch/
    
    #[updates-testing]
    #name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Unreleased Updates
    #baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/testing/$releasever/$basearch/

    I'm confused a bit here, I have evidently updated YM, but I don't see where I can examine the list of installable apps with YUM..

    Never mind I just found it.. yum list gave me oh so large of a list

    OH I belive I now have used YUM to install php and need to install gd but that one (using YUM gave me tons of errors..

    what else should I install??
