Last article I talked about tora installation from the sources, but if that is too much for you then you can use this one liner:

rpm -ivh "http://amit-agarwal.co.in/mystuff/tora-2.1.3-1.fc16.i686.rpm"

But if you like the hard way out, then you can always try this.

Color disk usage on Fedora

For this tip, you would need to setup the rpm-shere repository. You can get the information here. Once you have done that you need to install the cdu package with the following command:

sudo yum install cdu

And then you can use “cdu” to view the disk usage in all beautiful colors with the command:

cdu

and the output looks like this:

Interesting repository for Fedora.

Here is one repository that you can add to your Fedora to give it a few more hundred packages:

cat >/etc/yum.repos.d/rpm-sphere.repo <<EOF
[rpm-sphere]
name=RPM Sphere
baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/zhonghuaren/Fedora_16/
gpgkey=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/zhonghuaren/Fedora_16/repodata/repomd.xml.key
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
