[RESOLVED] how to work out which repo

Post by speedfreak » 2012/09/13 11:04:48

Hi all, a quick question, I have successfully added various repos (EPEL, RPM Forge, CentOS Plus) to my server, but I want to install "shred" and I have no idea how to work out which repo to add? I have had a look on the internet but can't seem to find any reference to a repo containing shred.

Alternatively if anyone can advise on an alternative package to shred that provides a secure erase facility with the ability to choose which method is used, then I would be very grateful.

Thanks

It's almost certainly already installed as it's part of the coreutils package.
