RedHat Linux

We’re becoming RHEL experts.

This started when I wanted to install the terminator package.

The terminator package is in the Extra Repositories for Enterprise Linux repository.

Step 1: wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm

Step 2: yum install epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm

Step 3: yum repolist

Step 3 above shows all the repos you have loaded and access to:

Loaded plugins: ulninfo
repo id repo name status
epel/x86_64 Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 7 – x86_64 13,485
ol7_UEKR5/x86_64 Latest Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 5 for Oracle Linux 7Server (x86_64) 183
ol7_latest/x86_64 Oracle Linux 7Server Latest (x86_64) 15,994
rpmforge RHEL 7Server – RPMforge.net – dag 245
repolist: 29,907

Step 4. yum install terminator

There you go.
