Setting up a usasble RHEL environment

Posted by

We use a mix of Ubuntu LTS and RHEL-based Linux here at work. While I generally vastly prefer Debian-based distributions, I also feel it’s not a good idea to keep all of your eggs in one basket, so I generally try to keep a usable RHEL laptop around for good measure. So, here’s what I do to make life livable using CentOS as a base:

ATrpms:

rpm –import http://packages.atrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms
vi /etc/yum.repos.d/atrpms.repo

[atrpms]
name=Fedora Core $releasever – $basearch – ATrpms
baseurl=http://dl.atrpms.net/el$releasever-$basearch/atrpms/stable
gpgkey=http://ATrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms
gpgcheck=1

wget http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm && rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

yum install mc denyhosts clusterssh
