chef-rpmforge

version 1.0.0 - changelog

Description

Adds the rpmforge repo to yum for redhat based distros. There are many common packages that aren't available or are severely out-of-date in the default rpm repos. To deal with this, we have to add another repo to be able to install software later in the run list.

See http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/FAQ.php for more info.
