Redhat YUM Repository


Hello Guys,

Just a quick questions here. I have purchased RHEL5 and do not have the required YUM repositories to access critical packages (ie. PHP5), the repository that I do have available is rhel-debuginfo.repo. Where would I find the correct repository?

Regards

If Red Hat is properly installed and registered with a serial number in RHN then you will have connectivity to the Red Hat yum repos, they are not publicly available.

If you want to use Red Hat Enterprise Linux then purchase support from them, this is how they stay in business.

If you want something for free then install/use one of the free 100% binary compatible 'clones' like Scientific Linux or CentOS.

Visit the Scientific Linux and CentOS sites they have all the information you need, for example;

http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Packag...ment/YumOnRHEL

Other third party repo's also have easy to find and follow directions;

Registered servers behind firewall

OK, so we have a bunch of registered (yes paid for) servers that are behind the corporate firewall, but need patches...
we have one machine that straddles both - is it possible to get it to be a repo for the various versions of redhat that are behind the firewall and serve out patches and updates?

I personally find the rhn thing a bit annoying, but maybe someone can enlighten me!

Yes, use the RedHat Proxy Server; its what it's designed for exactly. http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/RHNetwork/
