In this tutorial we will learn how to install and add the RPMforge repository into CentOS 5. We will also learn how to disable it once it is installed.

Installation:

Follow the simple steps below and the rpmforge repo will be installed in seconds.

1. Verify 32 Bit or 64 Bit:

Verify if your server is 32 bit or 64 bit. Use this tutorialspots.com article to verify if your system is 32-bit or 64-bit.

2. Install RPMFORGE:

Verify the latest release of the rpmforge directory here

32 Bit System:
rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el5.rf.i386.rpm

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/r

64 Bit System:
rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/x86_64/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm

This will install a file (rpmforge.repo) in /etc/yum.repos.d and a rpm-gpg key in /etc/pki/rpm-gpg. The rpmforge repo will now be included when installing and updating files using yum.

Disabling the RPMForge Repository once it is installed:

You need to edit the file /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmforge.repo and set the enabled flag to 0 on all instances.

enabled = 0
