# Extra Repositories


Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux or EPEL (opens new window) is a Fedora Special Interest Group that creates, maintains, and manages a high quality set of additional packages for Enterprise Linux. EPEL packages are usually based on their Fedora counterparts and will never conflict with or replace packages in the base Enterprise Linux distributions. EPEL uses much of the same infrastructure as Fedora, including buildsystem, bugzilla instance, updates manager, mirror manager and more.

Repository How to Enable
EPEL and CRB # dnf install epel-release

For more detailed information see the EPEL Quickstart Guide (opens new window).


During the installation process, you might get a prompt to install a GPG key. Compare the key to the "Primary key fingerprint" (see "Verify the downloaded ISO image checksum:") and if the fingerprints match, type "y" to continue.


Most EPEL packages require packages from PowerTools/CRB repository as dependencies. Run the suitable command to enable the PowerTools/CRB repository:

AlmaLinux OS 8

dnf config-manager --set-enabled powertools

AlmaLinux OS 9

dnf config-manager --set-enabled crb

# The ELRepo Project

The ELRepo Project (opens new window) focuses on hardware related packages to enhance your experience with Enterprise Linux. This includes filesystem drivers, graphics drivers, network drivers, sound drivers, webcam and video drivers. Newer kernels, kernel-ml and kernel-lt, are also available.

Repository How to Enable
ELRepo # dnf install elrepo-release

# RPM Fusion

RPM Fusion (opens new window) provides software that RHEL and other Enterprise Linux distributions do not ship (like software codecs).
