But many people who use RM2012 in their desktops want some "fresh" applications, and we can understand them. If some application is new it not necessarily mean that it is unstable.
Thus, several volunteers created a "fresh_personal" repository where you can find new versions of some applications from the "main" repository, for example: Firefox 15, GIMP 2.8.2, kernel 3.4.1 and some others.
To add this repository just run this command in a terminal (required root access rights):
urpmi.addmedia fresh_personal http://abf.rosalinux.ru/downloads/fresh_personal/repository/rosa2012lts/`arch`/main/release
DISCLAIMER: BY ENABLING THIS REPOSITORY YOU SHOULD UNDERSTAND THAT SOFTWARE IN THIS REPOSITORY IS NOT TESTED BY THE ROSA QUALITY TEAM AND NOBODY WILL GUARANTEE YOU THAT EVERYTHING WILL WORK. ALSO ROSA TEAM WILL NOT SUPPORT SYSTEMS WITH PACKAGES THAT WILL BE INSTALLED FROM THIS REPOSITORY.
P.S OK, if you read all above-stated and this doesn't scare you... Enjoy! :)
P.P.S VOLUNTEERS ARE WELCOME: If you a volunteer and want to backport some package for RM2012 (or already built it in your personal repository), think about possibility to build it to the "fresh_personal" repository, so many users will can use it.
