# Repositories

A repository stores software packages on a remote server that are used for installing and updating on Linux systems.

Any repository that is intended for RHEL or CentOS can be used in AlmaLinux. As a part of the project, besides AlmaLinux repositories, you may also use CentOS SIGs, EPEL, the ELRepo Project and Synergy repositories with the following instructions:

  • AlmaLinux - AlmaLinux repositories.
  • CentOS SIG - CentOS SIG's repositories.
  • Extras - Extra repositories such as EPEL and the ELRepo Project.
  • Synergy - Repository for any RHEL-compatible distribution with packages that are not present in RHEL or EPEL yet but were requested by the Community.
