Setup a RHEL 6.2 package repository(without all the 6.3 updates)


Is it possible to setup a RHEL 6.2 only repository? My repository recently upgraded to 6.3, but i want to keep it at 6.2 because that is what i am currently testing to. It seems there should be an easy way to do this.

You'd have to clone a 6.2 repository. I would ask Red Hat. Maybe they would give you the packages.

Alright thanks. Put in a ticket to RHEL but who know how long that will take. Were working on another solution by manually identifying which ones were updated. Not fun but i think we got it.

Going to Red Hat would be your best bet. And if you don't like waiting, you could alternatively use a 6.2 repository for a project like CentOS or Scientific Linux. They provide the same packages, just without the Red Hat trademarks. I don't think they would help you with that, but you could try it on your own.
