Fedora Servers :: Cannot Create Local 13 Repo: Pycurl Error 6?

Aug 16, 2010

I'm in the process of creating local repos for our company servers (CentOS 5.5) and laptops (Fedora 13). And while the CentOS part went perfect the Fedora part is causing major trouble.

But first things first, here's the setup: a central CentOS 5.5 server is running Apache2 and has a VirtualHost listening on Port 8080 for both CentOS and Fedora. The DocumentRoot for this VirtualHost is /data/repo wherein two directories, centos and fedora, reside.

This is the .repo-file for CentOS that works like a charm:


name=CentOS-$releasever - local packages for $basearch

After the CentOS repository was up and running I follwed the exact same steps and was expecting to find a Fedora repo up and running (I know, I know, silly me...). However, yum complains it cannot download the repomd.xml. The .repo-File is as follows:


name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch

Yum returns the following error message:

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: local. Please verify its path and try again

The path is definitely correct - copying the url and pasting it into a webbrowser returns the correct repomd.xml file, so does pasting it to wget.

Any ideas? Does createrepo need any parameters in order to create a working Fedora repository?

I had a similar setup with debian5 earlier but have lost the notes I made during the previous install.When I google minmal gui installs, there are different 'recipes' concerning which base packages for x are necessary e.g. xorg, x-window-system-core etc.Which packages for x should I choose (and why)?I don't use a display manager (gdm etc.), and the hardware is not so powerful (via en12000).

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

Feb 10, 2010

I know there has to be an easier way to do this than to download each file individually. On an ftp site I would just use
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?

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Upload Images Because It Cannot Create The Directories Required

Jun 1, 2010

I'm running OpenSuse 11.0 in a lamp configuration with Apache 2. I configured Apache with the .conf files instead of YAST because I am running virtual hosts (that's another story).

My problem is that my server will not render the pages unless the permissions are set to 775 which I know is not necessary. This is also causing a problem because I am trying to install WordPress onto the server. WordPress will run, but it unable to upload images because it cannot create the directories required.

Apache2 is running as 755 with root as owner and www as group. I changed the owner of the htdocs sub-directories to myself, and created a group that has permissions to write to the directory. WordPress runs as my user and has the same permissions (775).

I recently installed fedora and enjoying learning what it can do. One of the things that I wanted to do was play DVDs. I installed vlc and the libvdreader package but am unable to play DVDs.

OpenSUSE :: How To Create A Local Update Server

Aug 26, 2011

We have several linux hosts at our site. I would like to set one of the servers to offer a local update service rather than have each host contact the public servers for update information. This would greatly speed the updates for each host since we only have a DSL connection (about 1.2Mbps transfer rate). Is there a tutorial somewhere that describes how to set up a "shadow" update server?

Ubuntu Installation :: LUCID: Downloading Repositories/Packages - Get This Message " Unable To Find Expected Entry Deb-src/binary-i386/Packages In Meta-index File "?

Jun 24, 2010

I did the UPGRADE from Karmic Koala to Lucid, and everything was going well. But now I've been having problems with the UBUNTU UPDATE tool for the last 2 weeks. Every time I try to do an update check on the packages, I get the following message:Failed to fetch http:[url]....Release Unable to find expected entry deb-src/binary-i386/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.I've tried changing the servers to MAIN and others, and still no way to solve it. I've also checked for other posts, but haven't found a solution yet. Here's my SOURCES LIST (gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list)# See http:[url].... for how to upgrade to # newer versions of the distribution.

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.

Debian :: Downloading Packages With APT?

Jan 10, 2011

APT - it really has me mystified at times so I'm looking for an idiots guide on how to use it. I've googled and read the APT How to on the Debian site, as well as a lot of other APT pages, so I understand what it does and the command structure, but I can't seem to download one off packages from the Debian site.

I've managed to get the updates to work (ran an update the other day) so I know my source file is working (my source.list points to deb lenny main) however I don't understand/can't figure out how to get single packages from Debian.

As an example I want to get the rsynch package which has a download page in Debian and my mirror in the source.list file can be used. However when I do apt-get rsynch I get an error message that says it can't be found.

Looking at the Debian package website it does say that the rsynch package can be requested from the subdirectory of pool/main/r/rsync/ at any one of the listed download sites (of which the site in my source.list file is one of those listed). Do I have to add the pool/main/r/rsync/ information to my sources.list file, or add it to the apt-get command?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Warnings About Legalities Of Downloading The Codecs/files?

Apr 12, 2011

I put a few Itunes songs into my music folder and tried to play them. It didn't. Then, I got to reading in the forums and noticed that there was a "one click" configuration for Gnome users. After doing some more reading, I saw a lot of references to restricted codecs and things of that nature. After beginning the one-click process and then aborting midway through installation, three questions come to mind:

1) Why all the warnings about legalities of downloading the codecs/files? If I bought the music and I use the codecs to listen to it, where does legalities come into play?

2) While installing some of the different files, etc in the one-click process, I received a few warnings that a particular file was not from a trusted source (I don't remember the info verbatim) and then it gave me an email address, presumably from the developer, and asked if I wanted to install it anyway.

3) If I do go through the one-click process, will I be able to listen to I-tunes or am I pretty much screwed on I-tunes on linux?
