Top 5 Yum Repositories

The top 5 yum repositories for RHEL based systems (RPMFusin, EPEL, REMI, ELRepo, Webtatic) with installation links, which we need to keep our system up to date with the latest packages, are listed below. The majority of the RPMs available for servers can be found in these repositories.

1. Adding RPMFusin Repository

The RPM Fusion repository contains packages that are not used in Fedora or Red Hat releases. Depending on your system OS version, you can add the RPMFusion yum repository by running the commands below.

				
					### For CentOS/RHEL 7 ###
sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/rpmfusion-free-release-7.noarch.rpm 
sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-7.noarch.rpm

This project focuses on hardware-related packages that will improve the Enterprise Linux experience. Filesystem drivers, graphics drivers, network drivers, sound drivers, webcam, and video drivers are all examples of this.
