What is the equivalent CentOS 6 repo for the updates-testing repo of RHEL/Fedora? I am trying to follow the node.js installation instructions here and am having trouble figuring out what repo to add for CentOS 6.

Error getting repository data for updates-testing, repository not found

  • You don't. Those instructions are for Fedora only. Feb 16 '13 at 4:18
  • @MichaelHampton node.js was just one example of a package that might be found there. I would not consider this question a duplicate of the other (yes I read that one first)

Available Repositories for CentOS

Read under 'Additional CentOS Provided Repositories'. I believe the repository you are looking for is CentOS-Testing. You'll have to install it manually, as it doesn't come installed by default. The CentOS-Testing repo can be found at:


  • Thanks. It looks like this is the equivalent (in purpose) repo for CentOS. It doesn't happen to have the package I am looking for (nodejs) but I believe the answer is correct based on what I asked.

  • There's a serverfault question How do you install Node.JS on CentOS? that points to an RPM repo, but I think RHEL hasn't brought node.js into testing yet.
