Online Repository

Post by dragonbite » 2006/04/10 20:15:56

Is there a place I can go to view online the RPMs and verson available if I were to run up2date or Yum?

Sorry if this is an ignorant question. I've been using Gentoo and Ubuntu for a while and both of them have an online, searchable package listing which is handy for me because I run dial-up at home and I can easily check to see what version is available from work (T1). :-D

yum has a search parameter built-in.

eg:

yum search BlahBlahBlah
