    That was really helpful. I’ve been trying to install Vuze for ages on Fedora25, which in my opinion is the best and used the yum install vuze. Works like a dream. Thanks

      While installing packages with Yum, you will see the repository section from which the packages are downlaoding and installing, or you can check all the repositories under /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory.

    Hi Ravi,

    I have 2 questions mentioning below:

    If possible can i get any documentation / steps for how to create online yum repository in RedHat ?
    Just like we have in Centos.

    I have one below web link as repository for one monitoring tool (Zabbix) installation in Linux(RHEL 6).
    my question is how can i add/use this online zabbix repository in my yum repository?

    Thanks in advance.
