I'm trying to install rabbitvcs, a subversion GUI tool. http://wiki.rabbitvcs.org/wiki/install/fedora.

[foo@bar conf]# yum install nautilus-python pysvn python-configobj python-devel dbus-python python-dulwich  meld

[foo@bar conf]# 

Now, what do I need to do to get these packages ? I guess my organization wants to save on RHEL license/support costs and isn't providing me the package repositories. Are there alternate repositories from where I can download and install packages ? If yes, how do I go about it ?

I am a native windows user and trying to switch to linux and I've been frustrated by the lack of installers that install all the dependent software/packages. Pls. help me.

Thank you,

I was able to install pysvn, meld and python-configobj packages. but it could not install nautilus-python and python-dulwich.

What should I do now ?

Thanks again.

Most of those are in EPEL. Give that a try first.

thank you very much.I'm a linux noob. Can you guide me how to get EPEL on my box ? how do I know which version of EPEL is on my box ? –  anjanbacchu Feb 8 '12 at 1:57
    
The EPEL major version used must match the EL major version, so you want EPEL 5. The article linked to links to the various epel-release packages; simply download and install the appropriate one. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Feb 8 '12 at 2:01

also, I'm asking another question out here which you might be able to answer. superuser.com/questions/387308/… –  anjanbacchu Feb 8 '12 at 2:20
    
It looks like they're supposed to be in EPEL, but are not. I'd poke the bug reports to see where they're at. nautilus-python, python-dulwich –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Feb 8 '12 at 2:25
