You should use *either*, not both. In fact, I believe that some rpmforge packages may even conflict with the base distro. What do you need in rpmforge that isn't available from base, rpmfusion, or epel? The only thing I know of are some kmod packages from elrepo, and I have the elrepo.repo configuration so that either it's not enabled by default, or I only get specific packages for a specific machine from it (like an old NVIDIA card). > -- > Michael hennebry at web.cs.ndsu.NoDak.edu > "SCSI is NOT magic.
