“No package stress available, nothing to do”,"bash: yum-config-manager:command not fo


I am trying to install the stress package on CentOS 7 virtual machine running on vmware player on windows 7 laptop. I have tried many packages and have updated yum but whenever I run sudo yum install stress it tells me that there is no such package stress available and there is nothing to do. When I run it from the following download links using yum-config-manager, it tells me that there is no yum-config-manager command found. The download links are

yum-config-manager --add-repo "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/monitoring/CentOS_CentOS-6/server:monitoring.repo"

/sbin/OCICLI http://software.opensuse.org/ymp/ser...2&query=stress

How can I bypass these and download the stress package successfully? I want to use it to stress the vm but can't get past these hurdles. I am from an Ubuntu background and it was a lot easier on that. Please help.

It looks like you don't have yum-utils package installed in your CentOS box which gives yum-config-manager command. Install yum-utils using yum


Code:
yum install yum-utils
After installing, run your command to add the repo and it should work.

whenever I run that command now, or indeed any command, it just scans a list of mirrors and then tells me that they all failed. Why is this such a nightmare? Is there no easy way to install what should be a very basic package on this absolutely terrible os?

It could be due to connectivity from your server to yum repositories. You can manually download the yum-utils package from CentoS repos

http://reflector.westga.edu/repos/Ce...el7.noarch.rpm


If there are connectivity problem, you need to fix it so you can download the stress package from the other repo you're trying to add.

According to an answer which I am discussing at Unixstackexchange, the stress package which I want does not exist now in the Centos 7 version. Would you know of any simple commands(preferably easy to download) that perform a similar function and stress the vm?

this is a VM install
so
did you make a bridge to connect the VIRTUAL install using a VIRTUAL network card to the REAL!! network card ( virbr0)
dose firefox connect ?
can you ping Google ?
Code:
ping google.com

as to "stress"
did you do a yum search ?
the name might be different
Code:
su -
yum search stress

Download the package from ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/dag.wieer....rf.x86_64.rpm and copy to your VM. and then install using

Code:
rpm -ivh stress-1.0.2-1.el7.rf.x86_64.rpm
