I'd like to know which Centos repositories various packages are available at. Is there a directory somewhere? I tried googling it and didn't find anything.

If you have the repositories configured on your server "yum list" will show you which packages come from which repositories (or are already installed) in the third column.

[root@cobbler ~]# yum list | egrep 'foo|cobbler'
cobbler.x86_64                             1.6.6-1.el5                 installed
foomatic.x86_64                            3.0.2-38.3.el5              base
revisor-cobbler.noarch                     2.0.5.2-3.el5               epel

  • Thanks! I should clarify - I have most repositories disabled... will this still search through them?

    No, but you can pass the "--enablerepo=*" argument and it will.

Doing a yum search on the package name should show the repository from which it would install.

  • no - if they're disabled, yum is being told NOT to search them. Therefore, if you can't find the package you want, you need to enable other repositories.
