Repoforge, previously known as RPMforge, maintains a repository of RPM packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), CentOS and Scientific Linux. If you are a RHEL or CentOS user, I strongly suggest you set up Repoforge repository on your system, as it contains many useful software packages that are not available in existing stock repositories
Verifying RHEL/CentOS is 32 Bit or 64 Bit System
In order to set up Repoforge repository on CentOS, you first need to know the version of your CentOS as well as the underlying process architecture.
To find out which release version of CentOS you are using:
# cat /etc/redhat-release
Installing RPMForge Repository in RHEL/CentOS
To install Rpmforge repository use the following commands.
For RHEL/CentOS 6.x 64 Bit
# sudo rpm -Uvh http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.3-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
Once RPMforge is installed on your system, you can use yum to install all available packages from the Repoforgerepo.
# yum repolist
