I use CentOS 5.0 as "stealth" desktop system in town halls and public
libraries here (South France).
I use the CentOS repos with the yum-priorities plugin, and then
rpmforge. Everything that is not provided, I do either:
1) check out Fedora Core 6 SRPMs and build the binary package on my
system. See the WiKi page for how to build packages as normal user.
2) And if I can't find it there (example: xmms-wma), I check out the
.spec file in the freshrpms repo, download the corresponding source, and
that does the job.
