I read you have to be careful with repo files for security with third party ones added.
Anyway I have simply been trying to install ffmpeg and I am stuck because yum
doesn't like what it is reading from the repo files and since I don't have a real understanding of what these files do I can't make logical sense of it.
At first I followed Linux blog which suggested create one repo file in /etc/yum
I'm using CentOS 6.5 with Cobbler 2.4 (from EPEL). I'm trying to use a heredoc comment to create a repo file (which works) without the $basearch being interpreted. What happens is the file is created except $basearch is replaced with nothing (e.g.
I'm running F17 and inside of yum.repos.d. I see multiple repos listed like adobe-linux-1386.repo, fedora.repo, google-chrome.repo, etc. When I yum install are some files being downloaded from multiple different repos or all from one?
Does anyone have any idea how to use yum-config-manager to add repos into /etc/yum.repos.d ? I have tried all I know and can't get a lock on a url. and somehow it gets info. I've read all I know to and it doesn't help.
I had some issues with errors when I did `yum update` I did get things cleaned up and working well but I want to make sure I have all the Fedora 20 repos, seems like something is missing. I am leaving out the third party repos. So that leaves two for Fedora 20. Isn't there suppose to be three or four? Testing and Security or something like that?
I have a situation where the stock repo files that should exist in /etc/yum.repos.d/ (like centos-base.repo) are not present. I need to get them installed. I am sure this is simple, but after hours of searching, it seems I am not googling it correctly.
Basically I have a server with custom repos that are useless to me. I need epel, and epel needs centos-base.repo.
