You will need to add an:


in the /etc/yum.repo.d/*.repo file for nux.

You may also have to exclude other files from there as well (if there
are dependancies specifc to gimp28 that conflict with regular gimp.  It
will be trial and error (yum remove gimp .. add in the first exclude,
yum clean all ... yum install gimp .. if necessary exclude more stuff ..
repeat until it installs.
