Software repositories

Install software repository definitions on a RHEL8 previously-installation done without using our kickstart/image, by running as root:

# curl -o /etc/yum.repos.d/rhel8.repo

You may also want to consider adding the 'CERN' repository

# dnf --repofrompath='tmpcern,$releasever/CERN/$basearch/' install redhat-release --nogpgcheck
