I'm used to using ubuntu/debian repositories and they are great. I can apt-get just about any package and it'll be there. I have not found this on centos. I called my hosting company and they suggest I install atomic turtle since it's compatible with cPanel. This didn't work when I tried to install git.
yum install git ... No package git available
Repeat the same thing for just about any package, the default repositories are pathetic.
So perhaps there are other repositories I can use. Can anyone suggest any?
Edit The problem was cPanel excluding some git dependencies in yum.conf. See http://www.cmdln.org/2010/05/07/install-git-on-centos-cpanel-server/
