Cant install bugzilla on Centos using YUM


Hi All
I purchased a dedicated CentOS server from GoDaddy, the repos where busted I corrected them to use the CentOS repos and I added the rpmforge repo. When I try to install a package I get this amongst other things

  1. Setting up repositories
  2. Reading repository metadata in from local files
  3. Excluding Packages from CentOS-5 - Base
  4. Finished
  5. Excluding Packages from CentOS-5 - Updates
  6. Finished
  7. Excluding Packages from CentOS-5 - Plus
  8. Finished
  9. Excluding Packages from CentOS-5 - Addons
  10. Finished
  11. Excluding Packages from CentOS-5 - Extras
  12. Finished
  13. Parsing package install arguments
Is it normal to exclude pacakages for CentOS ? I enabled them all using enabled=1 and I even tried with enablerepo.

My current problem is that yum install bugzilla returns
nothing to do.

I really would like to install bugzilla using yum

Thanks

Does the base config look OK? Are there any Yum plugin setting that would exclude it? Else does running Yum with maximum verbosity give any clues?

Looks to me like it's in epel.

See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL?highlight=%28epel%29

Yes - it's a fedora project for RedHat Enterprise packages (so it works with CentOS)

The link I gave you should give installation instructions

Here's a neat tutorial to install bugzilla in CentOS (and possibly other distros, such as Fedora):
