Cobbler on Linux 5.5

Trying to install cobbler on Linux 5.5 but so many dependencies.

Any ideas of what software exactly if some one has used to make it successful installation? I couldn't find to download all the dependencies.

Any ideas?

Thank you....

Shalom,

Look and see if cobbler is part of a yum archive.

yum install cobbler

yum is a front end that calculates and deals with rpm dependencies.

On the link above you will find repository locations for EPEL, you should use these and then you will be able to install it using yum.

Thank you for your responses.

I can download only if I register the server right? This is a windows Intel server and trying to install Linux, still can I register with Red hat, being a premium account?

Thank you.

Re: Cobbler on Linux 5.5

Shalom,

epel is a free repository, that has nothing to do with RHN. You can use that repo as often as you want.

Red Hat's license requires that all systems used have support. If you have systems that are on a closed network, off Internet, you can use a single system on the public Internet to gather rpm updates for a repository for internal use.

Note clearly that if you use Red Hat you are required by the license to have support for each and every system, whether or not it directly connects to RHN.
