Fedora :: Using RHEL / CentOS Tailored Repositories?

Feb 20, 2011

I am currently setting up a Mono environment (mono, monodevelop, gtk#, etc.) in order to experiment with C# programming. Ideally I would like to use the latest version of mono, 2.10; however, F14 repos only carry 2.6.x . Compiling and installing 2.10 from tarballs is causing me dependency troubles which I'm not willing to dedicate much time to. In the meantime, I came across this Novell-hosted rpm repo, which is supposed to be used by RHEL/CentOS users:[URL]. Is it possible to somehow add said repository as an installation source via yum/rpm, or the differences between Fedora and RHEL repositories goes beyond aesthetic differences?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Adding Good Repositories For CentOS?

Feb 19, 2011

I'm giving CentOS a new look as a desktop. Been a few years since I last installed it on anything but a server. While the default repositories have improved greatly I am still bereft of so much of my cherished and necessary software. No Gambas, Wesnoth (shows up but version is 2 years out of date), Chrome, Audacious ugly plugins, XMMS support for FLAC (shows up but errors out if I try to install), Cinalarra, Audacity, JACK audio, Ardour, Xine, Amarok, Blender, Gthumb, Abiword, gramps, disk utility, many KDE apps, it's almost like KDE is a forgotten desktop manager for CentOS repsositories and pages more of software I'm too lazy too list. All of this is software which shows up in Debian based distros and most of which in Fedora/SUSE repositories.

What are some good repositories for CentOS. I clearly have the wrong ones enabled or CentOS is a very crippled desktop. Here are the repositories I've added/have.
c5-media errors out so I have it disabled.
kbs-CentOS-extras & misc
RPMforge extras errors out so I have it disabled.

CentOS users what repositories do you use?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Revert Back To CentOS Default Yum RPM Repositories?

Aug 5, 2009

A while back I had to install an extra yum rpm repository to my CentOS 5 server as I needed newer versions of httpd (v2.2. and php (v5.1.6) than were in the default repositories at the time.

I now wish to revert back to the standard repositories, I have removed reference to the custom repository from etc/yum.repos.d/ and used '# yum clean all' but cannot seem update these packages when I use '# yum update'.

Is there a way of making the rpm packages for httpd and php go back to using the standard repos, or will I have to manual update them from now on?

Or could I uninstall those rpms and reinstall from default repo without breaking the whole server?

CentOS 5 :: Pirut/yum: RHEL 5.1 - Maintain An Unregistered RHEL Box?

Feb 16, 2010

A client has sent me an RHEL 5.1 box for me to do some work on, but it's not registered with Red Hat. This is causing me problems, because it's a minimal installation, and I need some more dev software.My immediate reaction was to install various bits (emacs, and so on) from my Centos 5(.0) DVD.The base RHEL system only had one (disabled) repo entry,so I added a yum DVD repo entry in yum.conf.d.

This looked good to start with, but it doesn't work. Something in RHEL's pirut/yum/rpm/whatever is getting confused, and can't work out what is/isn't installed.

Question - how do you maintain an unregistered RHEL box? Has RH done something to make life difficult? Is my problem simply that I'm using a Centos 5.0 DVD, instead of Centos 5.1? Am I stuck with downloading lots of rpms from the net and doing everything manually? I really don't want to do that.

5 :: Upgrade From Fedora And RHEL To CentOS?

Jul 9, 2009

I have a very unusual [and most likely unsupported] upgrade path I need to take.

I have two servers, both Dell PE1800's that I need to upgrade.

One of them is a Fedora Core 4 (x86) box and the second is RHEL5 x86_64.

I need to do an in-place upgrade to CentOS 5.3 without having to reinstall from scratch and keeping my downtime to an absolute minimum. Each of these servers has about 10TB of data stored and I really don't want to have to reformat and restore from backps.

How can I do this?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Autodesk Support When Using Centos Instead Of RHEL

So as the title says, I am looking for your experiences in this issue, because CentOs and RHEL are very, VERY similar, it is basically the same, so I was wondering, if I can get official support from Autodesk if I'll use their software on CentOs instead on RHEL.

CentOS 5 Server :: LAMP Version Available In The Official CentOS 5.5 Repositories?

Oct 29, 2010

I'm quite new to Linux/CentOS. I installed LAMP from official CentOS repositories and I'm wondering why the PHP (5.1.6) or MySQL (5.0.77) versions are so old. Why there is now the latest versions available.

Is it recommended to use these versions or should I update to the newest one - if so could you plesae provide me some links to official repositories&tutorials.

Fedora :: Attach A RHEL/CentOS System To An Active Directory Domain?

Mar 22, 2009

Attach a Fedora/RHEL/CentOS system to an Active Directory DomainBelow is a step by step outline of how to configure a Linux Samba fileserver to use an Active Directory domain for authentication and authorization in place of flat files. Note that this configuration has been replicated using Fedora 10, RHEL 5.3 and CentOS 5 since they all more or less share the same code base.me of the example server in this document is erver1.domain.forest.org, substitute correctly where appropriate. At the very least following packages must also be installed:

sambasamba-commonsamba-clientkrb5-workstationopenldap-clientsIt would be prudent to understand the underlying concepts of how Kerberos and Samba work prior to deploying this type of server. I find that SE-Linux will interfere with Samba services, particularly with winbind. I usually set SE-Linux to be in a permissive mode. It is possible to update the SE-Linux policies but that is outside the scope of this document, i.e you're on your own. In some cases I turned SE-Linux off since it was causing winbind to stop responding.

1. Set NTP to use the correct server for your Active Directory domain:shell> system-config-timeSet the primary NTP server to be your domain/forest NTP server2. Make backups of and edit the following system configuration files:a. shell> cp /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf.bakb. shell> vi /etc/resolv.conf

nameserver dns_server1_ip_address
nameserver dns_server2_ip_address
search domain.forest.org

Red Hat :: Adding Repositories To My CentOS Box ?

Nov 7, 2010

I have noticed that some repos in /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo files have the definition "enable=0", I am not talking specifically about the "testing" repos... of course these have some packages tha may disrupt the normal working of CentOS... but about all the remaining repos ( non "testing" ) that are disabled by default...Is it dangerous to enable them...? even respecting priorities and having yum priorities activated...?

CentOS 5 :: Forcing YUM To Use A Particular Set Of Repositories?

Sep 6, 2009

I routinely build systems, and joy of joys, my ISP hosts one of the Centos Mirrors, and ergo downloads from there don't count against my ISP Quota

how do I force yum to use that particular repository for updates.

Alternately, I believe I can copy from there into my "local cache"? How does one do that?

Software :: CentOS And Non-standard Repositories

May 6, 2011

I haven't tried CentOS in a log time, but CentOS 6 is coming out in a while, so I thought about trying it again. I'm using Fedora now and I like it, but I'm still reinstalling at least once a year. I'd like to get to the point where I can just sit on CentOS and update to reasonably up-to-date software without having to go through the trouble of compiling, etc.

So, I'm getting ready to install CentOS 5.6 in a virtual machine to play with. What repositories should I install and which ones are compatible? I'm using RPM Fusion now with Fedora with a handful of others for specific software not available in RPM Fusion.

CentOS 5 :: Yum Install FPC - Repositories Never Changed?

Dec 5, 2009

I've just tried to install freepascal [URL] on CentOS 5 using 'yum install fpc', and it installed package fpc-2.2.2-3.el5.1.i386. Since official stable version of freepascal is 2.2.4 (and version 2.4 will soon be released as new stable version), is it possible to update "official" freepascal in CentOS 5 repository to 2.2.4 (and later possibly to 2.4) ? I've read somewhere (wiki or website or some other place), that CentOS wont have php 5.2.5 because official CentOS repositories are never changed. Does this also apply to other software (like freepascal)?

CentOS 5 :: Windows AD ACLS Used On Centos/RHEL Directories?

Aug 31, 2010

We are slowly migrating from a predominantly Windows house to a 50/50 Win/RHEL operation and even further in the future.Currently, we have a LOT of Windows folders that are created by custom applications which, upon creation of a new folder set, applies the corresponding ACL so that only the associated groups are able to access the folders. Now for the problem, we are migrating the applications to a RHEL55 environment and it is creating the folders on that system now but the groups are still residing in the Windows AD. Is there an "easy" (I know, a very relative term) to have the Windows groups given permission to the Linux shares without very much manual intervention?

OpenSUSE :: WARNING - Unable To Download List Of Repositories Or No Repositories Defined

Feb 9, 2011

I am running Suse 11.1 64bit, with KDE, recently I received a pop up on my screen, "something about update problems", I used Yast 2 and selected online Update and it couldn't find updates for Nvidia and froze at that point. I dis-enabled that repository and refreshed all of the remaining Repositories individually and it seemed to work. I then went to the repositories listing and selected "Add" and selected "community" repositories and received the following: WARNING Unable to download list of repositories or no repositories defined. What is my problem? How do I acquire the list of community repositories? I can live with out the Nvidia repository for now but would eventually like to get it back.

CentOS 5 :: Setting Up Repositories With RepoSync And Multiple Versions

Jul 17, 2009

I'm missing a fundamental that I just cant seem to wrap my head around with setting up repositories with RepoSync. I set up a local repository when my system was running version 5.2. Everything ran like a top up until the release of 5.3 Upon release I ran the standard yum on my 5.2 server which upgraded it to 5.3 and thats where my mental block is catching me up.

When I run a reposync It seems that all I'm able to download is the 5.2 packages. I'm trying to figure out how I can manage both a 5.2 repo along side a 5.3 repo with reposync and figure out what needs to be done to properly make reposync pull down the latest updates for the newer version. My original thinking was that once my repo server was upgraded to 5.3 it would start pulling the 5.3 updates but obviously I'm way off base since that is not happening.
