Re: Repository Creation

Shalom,

yum is a good way to do it.

Simple

Uses the now deprecated yum-arch method.

How oracle would do it.

More modern methodology with Fedora:

There is nothing except the license agreement stopping you from doing this with Red Hat. My company is licensed and I've created patch repos for RH 3 and 4.

Re: Repository Creation

Shalom again,

I imported my bookmarks from work and have some better ones.

Obviously violating your redhat license is easy with these bookmarks. Don't do it. Properly license your systems and this technology will make your updates easier. You can add any rpms you want, even home grown ones to these repositories.

Re: Repository Creation

The following link is to the top level of the HP Software.
You can select your OS and then all of the items become available.

If you have the VCRM installed then you can just pull down the PSP.
I have the VCRM configured to point to a top level directory and I store the PSPs in separate directories below that, with a separate directory for non-PSP files such as firmware.
