Where can I find certain rpm's for Fedora 8?


Hi!

I'm looking for the following rpm's BUT for x86_64 NOT i386. I tried to google it, but I wasn't very successful. Does anyone know of a server I can use. Obviously in my example at the bottom the server used was local. Also, I know how configure it with Yast on Suse, but does Fedora have a similar way of doing it with yum?

http://192.168.0.150/pub/fedora/linu...g/i386/extras/
libaio-0.3.106-3.2.i386.rpm

http://192.168.0.150/pub/fedora/linu...g/i386/extras/
libaio-devel-0.3.106-3.2.i386.rpm

http://192.168.0.150/pub/fedora/linu...g/i386/extras/
tcsh-6.15-1.fc8.i386.rpm

http://192.168.0.150/pub/fedora/linu...g/i386/extras/
xinetd-2.3.14-14.fc8.i386.rpm

Thanks!

The F8 that you installed should come with yum. So use yum to install the packages.
If your F8 is x86_64 then yum will install these 64 packages or else it will install 32 bit.
One more thing to see is that F8 is old and no longer supported. If you want to be on Fedora then latest is F10. If you are planning on using it on server then something like CentOS, which has got longer life cycle and support life, is better option.

You can select a mirror from the official list: http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/publiclist. Using yum you can setup additional repositories, similar to the Package Source configuration in Yast. The configuration files are stored in /etc/yum.repos.d. Maybe you have simply to check/modify the existing /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo file.

For further details, you can refer to this guide.

Thanks!

I took a long route, (doing it by hand) but I've got those rpm's now!

For anyone else who might perhaps need to do the same and don't quite know how to do it in a quicker way, here's where I got the rpm's: (this link is specifically for xinetd)

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3?stat...fc8.x86_64.rpm

I'm learning, very slowly, but surely.

:-)

To anyone else, I'd rather suggest the official repository http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...fc8.x86_64.rpm Even better if choosing a mirror in your vicinity, from the list linked in my previous post.

Hi!

I decided to learn how to do this like you suggested colucix, but I'm still fairly clueless. I looked at that link, and I like it very much as it explains it so that I'm not immediately confused. ;-)

But now, I tried
Code:
[root@gnlserv01 ~]# su -c 'yum grouplist'
Existing lock /var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running as pid 12521.
Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit...
and got many lines of "Another app..."
so I said
Code:
[root@gnlserv01 gaussianTests]# service yum-updatesd stop
Stopping yum-updatesd:                                     [  OK  ]
[root@gnlserv01 gaussianTests]# killall yum-updatesd
yum-updatesd: no process killed
[root@gnlserv01 gaussianTests]# killall yum
If I try
Code:
[compchem@gnlserv01 ~]$ su -c 'yum list tsclient'
Password:
as explained by http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/D.../SearchwithYum
it seems as if the terminal hangs.

Am I too impatient, or do I have to start some service somewhere?

colucix also referred to the file /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo, and this is how mine looks like:
Code:
[fedora]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch
failovermethod=priority
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/Everything/$basearch/os/
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY

[fedora-debuginfo]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - Debug
failovermethod=priority
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/Everything/$basearch/debug/
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-debug-$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY

[fedora-source]
name=Fedora $releasever - Source
failovermethod=priority
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/Everything/source/SRPMS/
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-source-$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY
I really want to know how to do this in the proper way especially since colucix rapped me across the fingers. ;-)
Thanks for the help!

The first entry in your /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo matches colucix if you look carefully. Probably you are too eager.
As mentioned though, F8 is not being updated anymore, so either get a current version (F10 or 11) or use Centos if you want long term updates.
