Just installed Fedora 15 with Gnome 3. Is there like a software center like in Ubuntu?

You can find it under Applications->System Tools->Add/remove software menu item; the features are searching for package names, application titles or description, and package groups. Alternatively, you could install yumex.

Fedora pkgdb is also a good source of information: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb

Yes I found that but it can't find hos to add repositories, is it possible? Will try yumex and check out the link! Thanks! – tbleckert May 12 '11 at 17:08
@tbleckert: within add/remove software->file->software sources you can only select which software repositories you intend to use (beware fiddling too much with repositories as you could generate orphans or maybe a dependecies hell). To add a repo you can start by installing the setup rpm from the repository website (ie. rpmfusion.org) or editing or creating by hand the files under /etc/yum.repos.d (youll need to be root). – guido May 16 '11 at 11:05
