[SOLVED] yum install * => No package * available

Postby MGreg » 2010/11/30 20:41:29

Hello,
I've been struggling on this for 12 hours and it's driving me mad.
I'm used to gentoo and rent a server with which gentoo was not provided so I decided to give CentOS a try.
The very first time everything went fine I installed apache & php extremely quickly. But today a shaggy iptable rule locked me out...(shame on me). So I had no other choice than reinstall the server. I thought it wouldn't be difficult to set up the programs.
However, no matter how many repositories I install, no matter how hard I try, which ever package I try to install I get the reply: "No package available".
From what I understand apache and php are part of CentOS-base rep but it doesn't work, I've added EPEL doesn't work, some "remi" doesn't work either.
This is just driving me mad so here are the different config files (there's no exclude rule... I cannot figure out why everything went fine 13 days ago and now I'm stuck).
If anyone could help .... thanks in advance.

#
# To use this repo, put in your DVD and use it with the other repos too:
#  yum --enablerepo=c5-media [command]

Should you need any other info about my config let me I'd do anything (or nearly) for someone who could help me out of this mess.

[SOLVED] yum install * => No package * available

Postby AlanBartlett » 2010/11/30 21:24:24

Welcome to the CentOS fora.

The recommended reading for all new members starts with the FAQ & Readme First.

The best thing you can do, to enable anyone to assist you, is to provide access to the output produced by executing ./getinfo.sh all, as detailed in How To Provide Information About Your System.

Once you have made that information available, for your own sanity, leave the system alone until tomorrow. :-)

Re: yum install * => No package * available

Two sections from your system information have caught my eye. The first, which is related to the subject of this thread, is --

Code: Select all
== BEGIN yum repolist all ==

== END   yum repolist all ==

There is (was) a problem with the metadata on your local (fastest) mirror and it should be resolvable with a --

Code: Select all
[b]yum clean all[/b]

Indeed, that may be all that is necessary to solve this issue.

The other thing that caught my eye is that your disk is configured as an EIDE device. Left like that, you will experience a distinct performance hit. I would suggest that you check the system BIOS and the connection to the controller to see if you can switch it into SATA/AHCI mode . . .

00:0f.0 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VX800 Serial ATA and EIDE Controller
. . .
00:0f.0 0101: 1106:5324

It looks as if the disk controller can be configured for SATA mode. It really depends upon the disk drive, itself.

THANK YOU

as you said
> yum clean all
solved it all.

As for the disk and the performance the server costs 14€/month with uncapped 1Gb/s bandwidth so I guess it's part of the package.
thanks again
