yum-cron missing from 5.2 x86_64 ?

Post by ataylor » 2008/06/25 08:33:31

Greetings,

"rpm -qa | grep yum"
does not find any yum-cron packages installed

"yum install yum-cron"
says nothing to do

Looking around manually there is a yum-cron-0.6-1.el5.centos.noarch.rpm in
http://mirror.centos.org/centos-5/5.1/os/x86_64/CentOS/
but not in
http://mirror.centos.org/centos-5/5.2/os/x86_64/CentOS/
It is present in the 5.2 i386 files.

Yum has been setup with fastestmirror, skip-broken and priorities for repos
rpmforge
base
updates
centosplus
addons
extras

I have downloaded the package yum-cron-0.6-1.el5.centos.noarch.rpm from the i386 repository and could install that manually, but was wondering if this is a bug ?

One more question, is there any advantage to installing this locally with yum, or rpm ?

Many thanks.

I confirm this. yum-cron is in CentOS-5.2 i386 but not in the x86_64 arch. I will investigate this.

Because it is too late to add yum-cron to base, devs added it to the extras repository. Also it will show up in updates at some point. If you run [b]yum install yum-cron[/b] later (after the package got propagated to mirrors), it should work.

Thanks for reporting.

OK, yum-cron is now in the extras repo (x86_64).

Sorted - yum working as advertised.

Many thanks for the rapid response.
