Enable the EPEL repository on CentOS/RedHat 7

By | ottobre 13, 2016

The EPEL repository, maintained by the team of fedoraproject, give us the ability to install additional packages such as htop, nagios, etc. multitail with the yum command. By default in RedHat or CentOS, are not allowed because it is not considered stable or reliable. After seeing how to enable on the 5 and 6 versions of CentOS and RHEL, today we see how to do that on the new version 7, released a few weeks ago.

Open the terminal as user “root” and unload the package with the command:

# wget "http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/beta/7/x86_64/epel-release-7-0.2.noarch.rpm"

The download is complete, valid for all architectures, install the package with the command:

# rpm -ivh epel-release-7-0.2.noarch.rpm

The installation is complete we check the list of repositories with the following command:

# yum repolist all

when properly installed will have a similar situation:

epel7

See you soon!
