Need guidance to install lm-sensors and gkrellm in CentOS 6.5


Hi Guys,

Need help to install lm_sensors and Gkrellm in my centos, did some research on the net and i did this:

# yum install lm_sensors

Output is:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Setting up Install Process
No package lm_sensors available.
Error: Nothing to do


Advice appreciated

Regards,

Mike

Hi,

epel provides gkrellm and AFAIK lm_sensors is in the standard CentOS repo. What is in your /etc/yum.repos.d/?

Hi,

you seem to have the repos that you need, but perhaps they are not enabled. You can check with:
Code:
yum repolist all

Hi,

you can edit the relevant .repo files and change "enabled=0" to "enabled=1".

Cheers,

Evo2.

Hi,

the .repo files are the files in /etc/yum.repos.d/ that end in .repo. For each repo that you want to enable, open the corresponding file in a text editor and change the line that looks like:
Code:
enabled=0
to
Code:
enabled=1

You should only need to enable the repos in the CentOS-Base.repo file and the epel.repo.
You definitely should install/setup yum-priorities http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities before enabling anything other than Centos repos.
