So, in order to learn the new anaconda features for installing FC6, I
must first install my FC6T2 system, then install anaconda (which I don't
really have a need for other than the docs)? :-(
I know this will be in the FC6 release notes when they finally happen,
but, perhaps a quick wiki page?
Anywho, for those interested:
repo (optional) - EXPERIMENTAL
Configures additional yum repositories that may be used as sources
for package installation. Multiple repo lines may be specified.
repo --name=<repoid> [--baseurl=<url>|--mirrorlist=<url>]
The repo id. This option is required.
The URL for the repository. The variables that may be used in
yum repo config files are not supported here. You may use one
of either this option or --mirrorlist, not both.
The URL pointing at a list of mirrors for the repository. The
variables that may be used in yum repo config files are not
supported here. You may use one of either this option or
--baseurl, not both.
