We are a 3rd-party provider of packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and respins such as CentOS Linux , Scientific Linux, Springdale, Oracle Linux and similar projects.


Our goal is to provide high quality packages for Enterprise Linux releases 6 and 7 that are not presently in the base EL package sets nor in other third-party repositories. To assist user requirements for newer versions of packages in the base EL package sets we will be offering such newer versions in our "plus" repository. Please see our usage page for information on how to maintain sanity when using the psychotic-plus packages.

The packages we offer are tested, and, more importantly, used before they are made available to the public. All packages are signed with a 4096-bit GPG key (signature fingerprint: 0x4875A356) and the public key is available at and also here as well as on the public key servers.

As an aid in package identification we use a package disttag of '.psychotic'

Please note that there are no plans to support EL8.
