Yum-RPM repository - Begining
Ok so as part of the installation process at Tikal we need a few rpm & apt-get packadges in order to install ALM, I recentlly added a small repository of collected rpms for rl5 (RHEL5 / CentOs5) - is is accessible via http://tux.tikalk.com/tikal-repos/rl5/ which is now on a test site - but is checked an working
As of now ther are only Pel prms which are used as Bugzilla installation prequiesets.
In order to test-run / enable this repository on a RedHat / CnetOs system perform the following tasks:
create a file called: tikal.repo under the directory /etc/yum.repos.d/
[my machine]# vim /etc/yum.repos.d/tikal.repo
copy 'n' paste the following lines:
you can also have enabled=0 but if you want to install from the repository yoiu will have to run the following command:
yum --enablerepo=tikal install <packagename>
This will follwo by an Apt-Get repository and a CentOs 4 / rl4 - for now I a building only the necesary repos.
