Where encounter the list of packages

Post by burjans » 2006/12/26 21:44:44

Somebody knows where I can see the list of packages that I can unload apt from CentOS, I need clamav and amavisd-new or to mailscanner.

I have formed centos.list as it follows:

# URL: http://www.centos.org

### CentOS-4 APT repository

rpm http://www.centos.org/ centos/4/i386 updates extras

I want to install those packages that I mention with apt not to have problems of dependencies.

Add the rpmforge repo to your configuration;


Remember CentOS4 == RHEL4

You should get used to using yum instead of apt BTW, RHEL5 will be using yum for updates and hence CentOS5. Unfortunately apt is badly broken in the multi-lib environment (32 and 64-bit mixed mode) and is not offered in the RHEL5 beta's.

It's only disappointing that YUM was unable to properly provide something like 'apt-get build-dep' provides. Working without seems like such a step back into dependency hell.
