Default Dag wieer's YUm repo

Also, I find that using apt as well as yum is an annoyance (and you have to run both to upgrade).

fortunately, all the installs in apt are available in yum form from Dag Wieer's repository.

to install: create a dag.repo file inside /etc/yum.repos.d directory with the following in it.
Code:
[dag]
name=Dag RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 
baseurl=http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el$releasever/en/$basearch/dag
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
and install the GPG key
Code:
rpm --import http://dag.wieers.com/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt
These instructions come from http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/apt/FAQ.php#B, then Yum operations will know about all the packages you might otherwise iinstall separately using apt.
