what is that yum-updatesd do? how can we install in the linux box. I am little bit confused; the last time i install Centos 5.2 on my comp it was there and now when i install in another comp it is not there? did i miss any thing during installation or has it to be manually configured? what is the function of yum-updatesd.conf file? Please help me as i m quite new to linux and therefore so my questions?
hi dear , yum-updatesd service is use on repo. creation .
HOw to create repo written below:
1. Copy "Server" directory from the CD/DVD in ur system.
2. Once copied Move in that directory for eg. u copied dir. in /home/Server/ so U HAVE TO MOVE IN THE SAME DIR. /home/Server/
3. Then run this command rpm -ivh --aid createrepo....tab press.
4. Go in the direc. /etc/yum.repos.d/
5. u will find one file here rhel.repo, make a same copy of that file with different name / for eg : xyz.repo.
open that file write base url in that file : for eg: baseurl-file:///home/Server
baseurl should be same as you copied your "Server" directory..
gpg check =0;enabeld=1,last line should be commented..
SAVE THAT FILE
6. run command createrepo -v path where u copied than ENTER
7. After that u have to use service yum-updatesd restart
8. run "chkconfig yum-updated on"
9. now ur repository is created in your system n install any rpm without showing dependencies...basically it helps to remove dependency..
