Subscription Management


I am newly installed Redhat 7 , and try to yum package , but got the following error ,

I do not have paid for Redhat subscription , would advise if I want to yum package , I have to pay for Redhat ? if not , what can I do ? thanks

#yum install NetworkManager


the system is not registered to Redhat Subscription Management. you can use subscription-manager to register.

There are no enabled repos.

Run "yum repolist all" to see the repos you have

You can enable repos with yum-config-manager --enable <repo>

If you're using RedHat and want RedHat updates you have to pay for a subscription.

If you don't want to pay RedHat then stop using it and install a "community supported" versions such as CentOS 7.

thanks reply ,

I just would like to confirm again .

What I would like to do is just run yum to install package ( not doing download package or any else ) , as you said , I have to pay if I use Redhat enterprise ?

thanks

on a RHEL system without subscription this would only work with a local repository installed, such as a DVD including the repositories.

Another possibility would be to use "yum localinstall package_name.rpm" in case you have the rpm saved to your system.

but, as said before: If you don't want subscriptions go for another distro, e.g. CentOS
