A quick post with instructions to enable DAG’s Yum Repository for CentOS as taken from his FAQ.

Installation is simply done by RPM packages, I am only bothering with CentOS (RHEL) 4 & 5 in this example:

CentOS 5 / i386:

rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

CentOS 5 / x86_64:

rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/x86_64/rpmforge/RPMS//rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm

CentOS 4 / i386:

rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el4/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm

CentOS 4 / x86_64:

rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el4/en/x86_64/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el4.rf.x86_64.rpm

This information is also found on DAG’s official webpage.
