CentOS 7 repositories?

Post by FractalizeR » 2014/07/08 19:17:28

Is there any repos for CentOS 7 already? This one http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-rele ... x86_64.rpm gives 404 error when trying to retrieve repo list.

I'd like to fetch nginx, mariadb 10.1 and php5.5 from somewhere. Don't like installing from sources :)

Mariadb is already a part of el7 as it replaces mysql. The base os also already has php 5.4.

I'd not rely on rpmforge for anything, they've barely updated the packages that they have for el5 and el6 for about 2 years even though some of those have security fixes pending.

Most repos wait for CentOS to become available before they start building. Not many want to pony up for a RHEL license if they're in the package building business. Expecting third party repos to be available for CentOS 7 immediately it is released is a bit cart-before-the-horse. I'm sure that in a few weeks the other repos will get online. EPEL is already talking about bringing EPEL7 out of beta status.

The problem is that core repo has mariadb 5.5, not 10.1 and php 5.4, not 5.5.

It isn't a problem to build software I need from sources, but I don't like the idea very much.

If you're already wanting newer packages than a two day old distro supplies then I'd suggest that you are using the wrong distro. CentOS is about stability not about the bleeding edge. Fedora sounds like a better fit for you

Well, I'm up to being conservative with the core libraries. But not with PHP, MySQL and webservers.

You do know they are fully patched against all known security vulnerabilities for the lifetime of the distribution? You don't need to run $latest because of that, in fact you are better off NOT running the latest since then the onus is on you to get the latest+1 when the next vulnerability comes out instead of just running yum update

Well, I'm not too much afraid of PHP + MySQL vulnerabilities for this particular server since it will run only verified scripts uploaded by me. MySQL is available only to localhost, no external access allowed.

I'm ok with not running latest PHP 5.5.x release. But I am definitely not ok for the repository not to include latest major release. PHP 5.4 is now more than 2 years old.

just switch to using mariadb official yum repo instead to get the latest mariadb 5.5 or 10.x versions ;)

the original poster's rpm link works for me now, using it on my CentOS 7 test installations :)
