We have shown you how to install EPEL repository on RHEL/CentOS/Scientific Linux in our previous tutorial. Now let us see how to add REMI repository which is created and maintained by a French guy named Remi Collect. REMI repository is free to use and is very stable.

Install REMI Repository On RHEL / CentOS / Scientific Linux / Fedora

Please be mindful that you should use REMI repository along with EPEL repository. Otherwise you may end up with dependency problem sometimes.

On Fedora 20  i386 or x86_64:

# wget
# yum install remi-release-20.rpm

On Fedora 19  i386 or x86_64:

# wget
# yum install remi-release-19.rpm

On Fedora 18  i386 or x86_64:

# rpm -Uvh

On Enterprise Linux 6 i386 or x86_64:

# wget
# rpm -Uvh remi-release-6.rpm
# for RHEL only
# rhn-channel --add --channel=rhel-$(uname -i)-server-optional-6

On Enterprise Linux 5 i386 or x86_64:

# wget
# rpm -Uvh remi-release-5.rpm

Enable REMI repository

Edit file remi.repo,

# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo

Find the line enabled =0 and change it to 1 to enable REMI repository.


Save and close the file.

Now list out the installed repositories with command:

# yum repolist

Sample output:
