Fedora :: Use Local Mirror For Yum - Set No Proxy For Local Mirror?

Jan 9, 2010

I'm using f12. My university has recently become a mirror for fedora packages. But i'm facing a trivial problem. I have set proxy for yum so that the packages that are not available on local mirror can be downloaded from other mirrors. But then i don't know how to set no proxy for my local server. Consequently it is not using my local mirror at all. Tell me how to set no proxy for the local mirror. I want my local mirror because it's damn fast. My proxy settings are like this (they go in /etc/yum.conf):

Ubuntu Servers :: Add External Repo To Mirror?

Sep 27, 2010

I'm wondering if its possible to add an external, non-Ubuntu mirror to my mirror server?

We have a few packages which need to be deployed during kickstart (Cinelerra and Eclipse plugins), and I would like to put them into my mirror repo so they are grabbed during kickstart, rather than manually adding them after the system is up.

CentOS 5 :: WGet Syntax To Download Repo From Mirror

Jan 21, 2010

After reading a lot of docs, I'm still having problems using wget to download a Centos repo from a mirror. Here's my best attempt so far:
$cd /repos/centos/5.4
$wget -r -nH --cut-dirs=3 -np [URL]
Of course I get all the unwanted index files etc, but I seem to get a lot of other downloads from the mirror, not just their 5.4 directory. It's like it's following other links on the web pages. Maybe I should be using "ftp://" instead of "http://" considering it's an ftp site, but I seem to have connection problems that way.

General :: Which Mirror Image - Create A USB Startup Disk?

Jun 13, 2011

At the Get Slackware page at the Slackware website it gives a list of addresses which when I click one of the addresses it redirects to another page with a list of mirror images. Which address and which mirror image do I need to work with Kubuntu 11.04 on my netbook so I can create a USB startup disk? With my connection speed these mirror image downloads take about an hour and a half and I cannot just be guessing which mirror image to download.

General :: Disk Utility And Df Show Different Disk Space ?

Nov 18, 2010

I don't understand disk sizes in Linux. I have a 500GB drive. It's ext4. I have run "tune2fs -m 0" on it to reserve the amount of space reserved for root to 0.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 that comes with a Disk Utility. When I run "System->Administration->Disk Utility (palimpsest)" the disk shows up as 500GB (see picture). But when I run df -h it shows up as 459GB. So, I don't understand the discrepancy.

When I run df I get the following:

Question: Why is Disk Utility showing me something different than "df"?

CentOS 5 :: How To Create A Local Mirror

Aug 22, 2011

I am trying to create a local mirror/repository for CentOS 5.6 for updates and network installs. I have read the page here on the site about how to do it over and over again, and I still can't figure it out. I have already created the directory, but right after that, I can't go any further. I know this is much easier than I probably think it is. Would someone mind telling me, (in beginners terms) on how to do this? I just want the 'os' package and nothing else.

Fedora Servers :: Mirror URL For Local Repository

Jan 30, 2009

I have been looking into setting up a local repository for updates etc as we have an increasing number of fedora clients/servers. Searching the web I found multiple how-to's on how to accomplish this little project. One thing that bothers me is that each how-to seems to refer to a "static URL" mirror for rsync to get the rpms.

Ubuntu Servers :: How TO Upgrade Local Apt-mirror?

May 17, 2010

After digging around trying to figure out how to upgrade my local apt-mirror to 10.04, I figured I would share it here so anyone else who does this, can do it with ease. It requires a few steps, and editing a couple files, but the process is relatively painless.This assumes you have an apt-mirror already running on your server. Also it assumes you're using /var/www/ubuntu as your root where all your packages are stored.

The first step is to visit and download the meta-release packages. Create a new directory, /var/www/ubuntu/upgrade, and drop the files there.On the client's end, a single file needs to be edited, /etc/update-manager/meta-release. Change the URI's in that file to the URI of your apt-mirror and run your update manager. Your upgrade will start, only asking if you want to change your paths in your sources.list. Agree to it, and the packages will download and configure.

Fedora :: Using 'createrepo' And Building A Local Network Mirror

Aug 3, 2009

As the title says I'm trying to build myself a local RPM mirror. I have multiple laptops and a desktop that use Fedora 11. So I used 'rsync' to setup and sync my directories. I next went on to create my repo with the 'createrepo' function. I run my server backend as FreeBSD so I moved my data over there and setup my 'lighttpd' service.

Everything went fine until I used 'rsync' and synced up my data. Am I supposed to run 'createrepo' after each sync? If so, does anyone else use the same kinda setup, even if not FreeBSD, but a different os other than linux for their server that they run this from? I've been dealing with this for 2 weeks now and finally gave up researching and testing and thought. Not something I'm good at doing. Check my register date and my first post date.

Edit: FreeBSD doesn't have a port or unofficial port for this. I noticed it seems to be written as a python script so thought I could somehow get it to run on FreeBSD with linux emulation.

Ubuntu :: Mirror Remote Server To Local Folder?

Aug 27, 2010

I have a remote drive mounted on my system(ubuntu 10.04 x64), and i have the contents of that drive backed up to dropbox. the problem is, if i unmount the drive, the files disappear from dropbox. is there a way to mirror the contents of the network drive to a localfolder(preferably in such a way that all changes and file deletions are changed on the local folder instantly, but unmounting doesn't delete it all)? It looks like rsync would work, but im not sure how to make it work.

CentOS 5 Server :: Setting Up The Local Installation Mirror?

Jan 11, 2010

I've just set up the local mirror for my 96 CentOS 5 workstations. The mirroring script is taken from public-mirror howto and looks like this:

rsync="/usr/bin/rsync -avHzL --delete --delay-updates" # replaced -q with -v for debuging purposes, removed --bwlimit, added -L to follow symlinks # tried several different same result


I tested mirror consistency by putting the mirror addres I'm syncing with, directly into repo file. Than yumex works fine. I tried several different mirrors with the same result.

Ubuntu Installation :: Errors Upgrading Release From Local Mirror

Apr 17, 2010

Release upgrade ends up with error:
"Error during update. A problem occurred during the update. This is usually some sort of network problem, please check your network connection and retry. The server may be overloaded. Restoring original system state".
When doing do-release-upgrade -d to upgrade from karmik to lucid. I using local mirror (also have http that works but not browseable). When I change lines in /etc/apt/sources.list from local mirror to official [URL] all works fine. I don't want to download 1Gb from internet (because of traffic cost). What is wrong with local mirror ? I can communicate with its owner, but what he needs to change on the mirror ?

Applications :: Create Local Mirror Of Remote Server Without Altering It?

Jul 29, 2009

I'm new here and hope to profit from your immense linux knowledge and of course to share my own experience where I can.

I'm in a student organization and we use a file server that runs linux. I can log in through ssh and copy using scp using login and password (no rsa/dsa keys because most users are windows users using winSCP and they're lacking in computer knowledge so we don't require them to mess around with keys)

However, I don't have network access everywhere, so I'd like to make a copy on my laptop harddisk of some of the folders I use most frequently. Note that I don't need it to copy files from my pc back to the remote server so I don't need two-way sync. Deleting the local copy every time and downloading a new full copy is not an option as we are talking about several gigabytes and the download speed is limited. Normally I would use Unison, however, this requires unison to be installed on both pc's and I can't install any software on the file server so this is not an option.

Any ideas on how to achieve this? I'm reasonable knowledgable about linux so I don't mind tinkering with some config files and using command line applications.

General :: Mask Local Timer Interrupts In User Space?

Oct 27, 2010

I am trying to figure out how to mask local timer interrupts on a specific core of a multicore system from within user space. The interrupts are causing latency spikes of 3-10u that we would like to remove. We are only running 1 thread on the core h everything shielded except for these timer interrupts. This thread makes no system calls and thus is never getting context switched out. I am not looking to turn them off entirely but rather turn them off, run my code, turn them on in a continuous loop. The thread runs in user space which we are hoping to maintain. We also have no desire to modify the kernel if possible. I've read about using spinlock_irqsave() but it appears (not positive) that it must be used within kernel space.

Slackware :: Command To Create Local Mirror Of Alien Bob's Kde4.4.0 Packages?

PHP Code...

But with those files being on an HTTP server and wget not supporting HTTP file globbing I'm at a loss.

What is a one step method to recursively download all files in a directory on an HTTP server?

Server :: RHEL 6 Local YUM Repo?

Aug 18, 2011

I'm trying to build a local YUM repository for RHEL 6 and am running into an issue. I can get the repo to build, but I cannot get the gruoplist. I can't find a comps.xml file to run the createrepo -g command against, like there is in RHEL 5. Here's what I have so far:

mkdir /yumrepo
copied RHEL 6 DVD contents to /yumrepo/rhel6
createrepo /yumrepo/rhel6/Packages
(repo builds its lis of 3500+ packages)
yum list shows the lsit of all files within the repo correctly.

I run gpk-application, and I receive the error "The group list was invalid." I need to create the group list. But I can't figure out how? Can someone please explain what I'm missing here? Never had this much trouble with 5, but I know a lot has changed with 6.

Software :: Installing From Local Repo

Sep 13, 2010

I have created a local repository to install linux with. (class assignment) Created the following file structure off of /html directory;


copied the contents of the packages from my fedora dvd;

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt
cd /mnt/Packages
cp -v * /var/www/html/yum/base/13/i386
cd /
umount /mnt

using rsync against fedora mirror updated the base to have compete set of .rpm packages from the Everything directory. Ran createrepo /var/www/html/yum/base/13/i386 Verified repodata folder was created and the contents are correct, shown below


Boot the PC and start the install using a kickstart file (if you need to see it let me know), all runs fine until it gets to the point of resolving dependency then it errors out - unable to resolve dependency against the repository. May not be the exact phrasing but generally speaking to that effect.

Slackware :: Disk Space Lost- Root Partition Has Very Little Space Left

Jan 31, 2010

Today I was installing a lot of software since I'm just setting up my Slackware system again after a fresh install, and I realized that my root partition has very little space left.

Here is the output of df -h:


As you can see, I have a 20G (19G here for some reason) root partition, 8G /var, and 86G of /home. I thought this would be plenty since many recent recommendations for / are 10-15G. Now, though, 17G are used up for some reason! How is this possible? I thought a full slackware install only had about 4G of software! I don't have any music or movies or any crazy huge files that I know of, and those would be in my /home directory anyway. Is there any way I can see which files are taking up all this space?

If it's necessary to allocate more space to my / partition, is it still possible to boot up a GParted live Cd, shrink /home a bit, move some partitions to the right, and expand my root partition? I would REALLY prefer I don't have to reinstall since I just spent a ton of time setting up my system again, but if worst comes to worst ... :'-(

In case you're curious, here's my /etc/fstab:
