I’d like to have some clarifications about the use of the interworx YUM repositories.
Ok I’ll try to be very explicit, and I beg you pardon if I not.
In the updates.interworx.com there is 5 main groups of repositories.
1- The centos, this is a replicate centos repo
2- The Fedora, this is a replicate fedora repo
3- Iworx, this is the repo for iworx for every arch
4- Redhat, the repo for redhat 9
5- Whitebox, this is a replicate WhiteBox repo
Before, when we had a centos arch then the yum.conf was set to point to both the centos replication repo and the iworx/centos repo.
So basicly we had the updates of the centos repo and those of interworx-cp for centos.
Centos seems to have changed their repository and for an obvious resaon (for me) it causes trouble to interworx. Do not hesitate to stop me if I wrong.
So now, for centos4x arch, interworx set the yum conf to point to iworx/noarch and iworx/rhe4x
That could fine as rhe4x and centos4x have the same rpms (to be confirmed) but it looks like interworx have only iworx made RPMS in this repo. For example :
So it looks like there is no more default os update made by centos or even by rhe4x available. I mean where are the OS updates rpms created by the centos team ?
I’m not sure to be right, maybe I wrong, but for me it’s obvious now to have m yum.conf pointed to only iworx rpms and not pointed to centos rpms updates.
I’m not sure at all there is os updates. If there is a centos4.5 released, hw my yum.conf will grab these updates ?
if somebody could confirm what I’m talking about or unconfirm this and give me some explanations I’ll really apreciate. As I said now yum.conf for a centos box is obvious for me and some clarification might help me.
