yum repositories
 
Hi,

I am using Oracle Linux, I am able to do yum update, but I am not sure which repository its using.
I have two files in /etc/yum.repos.d, both have enabled = 0. I have checked /etc/yum.conf and see not repositories listed. I can do a yum repolist and I see :
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
repo id repo name status
ol6_x86_64_latest Oracle Linux 6 Latest (x86_64) 18,150
repolist: 18,150

where is Linux getting this info from?

Thanks
Randy

'yum repolist enabled'

thanks but
 
that did not help, it still gives a list of the repository names. I have disabled all the repository files in /etc/yum.repos.d but I can still get out to the internet and update my system. so there must be a repository file I am not finding that is enabled.

if you did not reboot
or
rebuild the database
then the enabled repos are STILL in ram and still being used

normally the database IS automatically rebuilt on any change to the *.repo files
unless you disabled that

Code:

su -
rpm --rebuilddb
yum update

not the same
 
I do not want to rebuild the database.
what I would like to do is find out how the os knows where to go for the updates.
I have disabled the files in /etc/yum.repos.d/ and yet when I run yum update, it knows where to go for the latest versions of the packages. I have also looked at /etc/yum.conf and there is nothing in there.

Then consult the manual and run yum in debug mode. Maybe that shows some clues.

my guess is that the repo is still in the cache. Why not try a
Code:

yum clean all
Then try to update and see if it still knows where to go

John VV 11-13-2012 01:13 PM

Post the output of this please
Code:

su -
yum repolist all


some ( almost all) of the text files in /etc/yum.repos.d
Have more than one section
the normal
the source
the update


but the normal very first thing to try with a yum erroris the normal everyday fix that works 90% of the time
Code:

su -
yum clean all
rpm --rebuilddb
yum update

for 5 % of the remaining 10% this dose it
reverse the yum and rpm command
Code:

su -
rpm --rebuilddb
yum clean all
