Question Yum problem in fresh Installed RHEL 6


Dear respected experts,

I had installed RHEL6 on my server and when I try to install packages and updates it gives me following error.

Quote:
[root@localhost ~]# yum install squid
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Setting up Install Process
No package squid available.
Error: Nothing to do

[root@localhost ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Setting up Update Process
No Packages marked for Update

[root@localhost ~]# yum check-update
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
[root@localhost ~]#
I used to apply these commands on CentOS but now I want to switch to RHEL to make my hands dirty with this flavor.

Please assist.

Unlike its descendant CentOS, RHEL has a subscription-based support model. Which means you need to have a RHN subscription to use to update from official repos. So you either have to configure your system to use RHN or switch to CentOS repos. Try "sudo yum repolist" to see active repos for you.

If you don't want to pay for RHN, your choices would be to switch to an alternative distro or change your system to use CentOS (or other RHEL compatible repos).

Edit: CentOS is practically RHEL sans the trademarks. Red Hat may not provide packaged updates for non-subscribed RHEL installs, but remember the reason CentOS, Scientific Linux, etc. are able to exist is Red Hat being nice and providing sources.

First from your 'yum repolist' I can see that you have no repos configured. Second, you can find answers to both your questions by Googling.

Here's a few pointers anyway.
1. You'll need to buy (if you haven't already) a RHN subscription. There are guides about configuration. Eg: RHN Client Configuration.

2. You'll probably need to install "centos-release" and/or add yum repo files. Better google it.

Dear SkyEye,

As you mentioned i have no repo configured, can you plese tell me how to configure it? second I already googled and tried the methods to use some other repo, including one method of making "Foo" file with nexcraft repo and rest of methods but non of them worked :S so finally, posted to experts here.

Follow this guide and replace the commands with the correct distro version and architecture you have. The guide uses CentOS 5.4 and i386. Replace these with your values.

Did you forget the part where I said:

For example in one box, I used the command:
instead of "wget http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.4/os/i386/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5". You'll have to figure out broken links, usually by visiting the URL is a browser and changing values.

You can get your arch by "uname -i" and your distro target version right now should be 6.3.

This is a fairly trivial operation, if you followed a guide and used your system arch and version. Don't know why you couldn't get it working. Anyway, good luck.
