CentOS / Fedora

For RPM based systems, we provide the Excentis yum repositories.

1. Download

You can download the packages to initiate the repository configuration on our download page.

The installation and activativation of the Excentis repository needs both packages:

  • Base package for Excentis Repository users (excentis-repo-user)
  • Excentis Repository Configuration (excentis-repo)

2. Install Excentis repository

To initialize the excentis repository, Install the two downloaded files.

This must be done as either privileged user or user root.

a. Using command-line
CentOS
$ yum install -y ~/Downloads/excentis-repo-user-1.0-1.*.noarch.rpm ~/Downloads/excentis-repo-1.0-1.*.noarch.rpm
Fedora
$ dnf install -y ~/Downloads/excentis-repo-user-1.0-1.*.noarch.rpm ~/Downloads/excentis-repo-1.0-1.*.noarch.rpm
b. Using GUI

Open your downloaded packages from your file manager and click on the Install button.
