Looking For A Comprehensive List Of CentOS-compatible Yum Repositories (for Gnustep Program)

CentOS 3 Comments

I installed CentOS 6.4 on a partition on my computer a few days ago, and i’m trying to equip it with the software i think i need.

For example, i need, or i think i need, a couple of gnustep programs for uploading images from my digital camera (the programs being openapp and Camera.app).

I imagine that these are old enough that they must surely exist in rpms somewhere.

But i apparently don’t know how to google around sufficiently well to locate a repository that contains them, or even that contains packages that i know exist as rpms. For example: i’m certain that an rpm exists for a package called gnustep-make, because its name popped up on http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t’9655
But if i try ‘sudo yum install gnustep-make’ i get ‘No package gnustep-make available.’
So that clearly means that i don’t have enough repositories configured for use.

So, i’d be grateful for any pointers to a list of CentOS-compatible repositories that i can put in the yum configuration (/etc/yum.repos.d or elsewhere). (Maybe this is a FAQ, or an RTFM — i’d appreciate any steering here!)

    Thanks Mark. and Keith for your suggestions.

    epel (“Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux”) is key here (thanks Mark), and the additional repositories link that Keith gave had enough information and pointers for me to see how to add it in.

    And epel does indeed have the gnustep packages — or at least the base ones. (I have not yet found Camera.app in an rpm that i can use, but i think this puts me much much closer.)
