Angry Help with YUM!


Hey people,

I have a Redhat 7.3 VPS w/ Plesk Server Administration v7.0.0.2. I want to update apache, php, mysql, bind, courier-imap, and qmail. Basically all of the apps my website depends on to run. I used YUM some time ago and got it to work for me but don't remember much now. So.. what I am looking for toda is some guidance setting up my config file and maybe someone I can IM for quick questions.

Below is my config file, based on what I've told you, will it get the job done?

Quote:
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest

[atomic]
name=Atomic Rocket Turtle - $releasever - Atomic PSA-Compatible RPMS
baseurl=http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/art/$releasever/
baseurl=http://archive.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/art/$releasever/
baseurl=http://www.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/art/$releasever/

[psa-7.0]
name=Atomic Rocket Turtle - $releasever - SW-Soft PSA 7.0 RPMS

baseurl=http://www.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/psa-7.0/$releasever/

[base]

[updates]
name=Atomic Rocket Turtle - $releasever - OS Update RPMS mirror
baseurl=http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/3rd-party/updates/$releasever/
Thank you very much for your time, I greatly appreciate it!

do google search

You should search for your individual packages using google to locate the appropriate 7.3 repositories.

You may want to include the following in your choice of repositories.

http://atrpms.net/

They have a repository broken down by applications for 7.3

yep....

If the address is correct, that looks like it should work.

If you want, you can download and install their gpg key

wget http://ATrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms
rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms

Then also include the line

gpgcheck = 1

in the yum.conf entry for atrpms.


You can read atrpms' instructions at

http://atrpms.net/install.html


There seem to be subdirectories under /rh73/, so maybe your http address isn't correct. Here is a page which includes rpms which, when installed should configure your yum or apt-get package managers to use atrpms

http://atrpms.net/dist/rh73/atrpms-package-config/


It looks like they have packages for yum 2.0 now. Perhaps you should consider updating to that. I hear it runs faster and more nicely than the original yum.

http://atrpms.net/dist/rh73/yum20/

You may need to add the others back in again, I don't know.

If all else fails, you can go here

http://atrpms.net/name/

and look for packages by name. Within each package subdirectory, the distros, including rh7.3 are offered as choices.
