Other repositories required


This are the only third repositories I use, I contribute to and I recommend.

The remi-test and remi-php55 repositories requires the remi repository for dependencies.

1. Download

It is preferable to use YUM to download and install RPM available on this site, however il can be useful to download a RPM for a futher use or for another computer.

Locations :

2. Package manager configuration

This repository use the YUM format, it can also be used with APT and SMART. It need to be declared.

Notes :

  • 2012-03-01 : the Enterprise Linux ≤ 4 repositories are closed
  • 2014-08-28 : the Fedora 16 repositories are closed.
  • 2014-08-31 : the Fedora 14 repositories are moved to archives (no more mirrored).
  • 2013-10-03 : the new repository remi-php55 is created.
  • 2014-03-02 : the new repository remi-php56 is created.

2.1. YUM automatic configuration

The simplest way is to install the remi-release package which provides the repository configuration for YUM and the GPG key used to sign the RPM.

Enterprise Linux 7 (with EPEL) x86_64
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/epel-release-7-1.noarch.rpm
wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm
rpm -Uvh remi-release-7*.rpm epel-release-7*.rpm
# for RHEL only
subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-optional-rpms
Enterprise Linux 6 (with EPEL) i386 or x86_64
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
rpm -Uvh remi-release-6*.rpm epel-release-6*.rpm
# for RHEL only
rhn-channel --add --channel=rhel-$(uname -i)-server-optional-6

Enterprise Linux 5 (with EPEL) i386 or x86_64

wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-5.rpm
rpm -Uvh remi-release-5*.rpm epel-release-5*.rpm

Fedora 21  i386 or x86_64

wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/remi-release-21.rpm
yum install remi-release-21.rpm

Fedora 20  i386 or x86_64

wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/remi-release-20.rpm
yum install remi-release-20.rpm

Fedora 19  i386 or x86_64

wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/remi-release-19.rpm
yum install remi-release-19.rpm
2.2. APT configuration

As for YUM, install the automatic configuration package. To enable the repository, you need to uncomment, in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/remi.list file, the line :

repomd http://rpms.famillecollet.com/ fc$(VERSION).$(ARCH)

2.3. SMART configuration

As for YUM, install the automatic configuration package. To enable the repository, you have to select it in the Edition / Channel menu.

2.3. YUM manual configuration

You just have to download the repository file configuration and to save it in the appropriate direcotry.

Fedora :

su -
cd /etc/yum.repos.d
wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/fedora/remi.repo

Enterprise Linux (RHEL, CentOS) :

su -
cd /etc/yum.repos.d
wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi.repo

This file provides configuration for remi, remi-php55 and remi-test repositories.

Notice : the repository is not enabled on install (enabled=0). You need to enable it when you need it, for example :

yum --enablerepo=remi install firefox-langpack-fr

3. Compatibility with other repositories

On Fedora, available RPM mainly use dependencies from  fedora, and updates repositories, sometime from Rpmfusion.

On RHEL and CentOS dependencies are in main repositories and in EPEL. I really discourage you from using Rpmforge (well known conflicts with EPEL).

On RHEL-6, the RHEL Server Optional channel must be enabled.

Exceptions are explained on the blog article of each RPM.

4. Remi's signature Installation (GPG Key)

This step is not required if you use a package manager (Yum of Apt).

The RPM validity check requires my key to be imported on your system before use. Download This GPG key and install it with :

rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY-remi

YUM will propose you to automatic install it on first installation of a RPM from my repository.

You can list the installed key with :

rpm -q gpg-pubkey --qf "%{summary} ->%{version}-%{release}\n"

My old key fingerprint was : 00f97f56-4267cb5c

My new key fingerprint is : 00f97f56-467e318a

5. Support

Use the Forums or the #remirepo IRC channel on freenode.
