How do I install a package from “fedora updates” on AL2 or AL2022?


I want to install a package (loudgain) on either Amazon Linux 2 or Amazon Linux 2022 (in order to create a layer containing this binary that I can use to deploy a lambda.) It’s apparently available in the “fedora updates” package repository.

How do I do this?

Hi Ratkins,

I believe you want to install a loudgain package on Amazon Linux 2. To install a software package from “fedora updates”, you need to add the repository information to the /etc/yum.conf file or to its own repository.repo file in the /etc/yum.repos.d directory. You can do this manually, but most yum repositories provide their own repository.repo file at their repository URL. A documentation with guided steps has been provided please refer to it [1].

  • Yes, I did that in the end (though it took quite a while to work out what the .repo file should look like.) But unfortunately the package I want wasn’t found in the repo, despite claiming it was.
