Installing MySQL Workbench using command in Fedora Linux

Installing MySQL Workbench, on Fedora 13, is as follows:

Login as root
Open a terminal window in GNOME/KDE or switch to the command line
Issue the command:
rpm --import

Next, issue the command:
yum install

Open the file named remi.repo, found in the directory /etc/yum.repos.d, in a text editor (say vi) and change line no. 5 from:
enabled=0 to enabled=1
This will enable the [remi] repository.
Finally issue:
yum install mysql-workbench
to install MySQL Workbench on Fedora 13.

Henceforth, MySQL Workbench can be launched via a terminal window by issuing mysql-workbench or it can be found under Applications >Programming in GNOME.
