    linux distributions.</a></h2>
    <br>
    
    <p>Do not use the packages in the native repositories. They are
    frequently out of date. That means you'll be missing stability and
    security fixes.
    </p>
    
    <p>
    You'll need to set up our package repository before you can fetch
    Tor.  Assuming yum, in /etc/yum.repos.d/, create a file called
    torproject.repo.  Edit this file with the following information:
    <pre>[torproject]
    name=Tor and Vidalia
    enabled=1
    autorefresh=0
    baseurl=http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org/rpm/DISTRIBUTION/
    type=rpm-md
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org/rpm/RPM-GPG-KEY-torproject.org
    </pre>
    
    If you wish to track the stable releases of Tor, you should substitute
    DISTRIBUTION with one of the following: centos4, centos5, fc10, fc11, fc12,
    suse</p>
    
    <p>To track experimental releases, substitute DISTRIBUTION with one of these:
    centos4-experimental, centos5-experimental, fc10-experimental,
    fc11-experimental, fc12-experimental, suse-experimental</p>
    
    <p>
    Now Tor is installed and running. Move on to <a href="<page
    docs/tor-doc-unix>#polipo">step two</a> of the "Tor on Linux/Unix"
    instructions.
    </p>
    
    <p style="font-size: small">
    The DNS name <code>deb.torproject.org</code> is actually a set of independent
    servers in a DNS round robin configuration.  If you for some reason cannot
    access it you might try to use the name of one of its part instead.  Try
    <code>deb-master.torproject.org</code>,
    <code>mirror.netcologne.de</code> or
    <code>tor.mirror.youam.de</code>.
