Question YUM on Cent OS


Hi All,

i am on CentOS 5.5.Can anyone share steps to creating local yum repository i did below steps but failed

First i copy whole all the dvd data to /var/ftp/pub/centos/
and create a .repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d/server.repo content is as follows

[root@Test ~]# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/Server.repo
[base]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Base
baseurl=file:///var/ftp/pub/centos/Centos/
#mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=os
#baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
#gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5
#released updates
#[update]
#name=CentOS-$releasever - Updates
#baseurl=http://192.168.*.*/centos/$releasever/updates/$basearch/
#mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=updates
#baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/updates/$basearch/
#gpgcheck=1
#gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5


[root@Test ~]# yum list
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
file:///var/ftp/pub/centos/Centos/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 5] OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/var/ftp/pub/centos/Centos/repodata/repomd.xml'
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: base. Please verify its path and try again

Please let me know if anymore info is needed.

May be you missed step "2" : Command = 'createrepo <location>'
( Like 'createrepo /var/www/html/centos/4/os/i386/' )

i didn't
i tried commands below

1)createrepo /var/ftp/pub/centos/Centos
2)createrepo /var/ftp/pub/centos/
3)[root@Test CentOS]# cp /var/ftp/pub/centos/Centos/repodata/repomd.xml .
then fire command
createrepo -g /var/ftp/pub/centos/Centos .

but no luck


one thing here to ask is this a strict way to take hierarchy of directories as knudfl says.
because link of the tutorial suggested the below hierarchy.
( Like 'createrepo /var/www/html/centos/4/os/i386/' )

second thing is in the file /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo(sample below)
where it get the value of $releasever and $basearch

[base]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Base
baseurl=http://192.168.*.*/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
#mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=os
#baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/

Those are only used, when you don't have a fixed 'baseurl' like

baseurl=***********/var/www/html/centos/5/os/i386/
Or ..
baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.5/os/i386/
.....

The example in the linked HOWTO shows this
baseurl=http://192.168.*.*/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/

... and the release etc. information is probably fetched from files in /etc/.
.

Please see this link.

Remember, always try to google first before posting in LQ.

Also try to use codes. It makes post much readable.
