No SCL repo for 6.8, breaks yum if centos-release-SCL is installed

Postby griffint » 2016/05/25 18:41:39

I see the yum repo symlink for 6 on the mirrors is flipping over from 6.7 to 6.8, but there is no SCL repo for 6.8. So this causes yum to break for anyone that has centos-release-SCL package installed from 6.7 extras.

Future-wise, either SCL needs to be rebuilt before flipping the symlink, or at least populated with a valid but empty repomd.xml. Or maybe the SCL repos should not be under the minor-number trees at all. Maybe they should just be at the major-version level.

The centos-release-SCL package is old and has already been replaced. The removal in 6.8 is just catching up with reality. There is also a centos-release-scl and that package is the newer one and it is intended that it should receive an update that will make it Obsolete: the older version. I am not sure if that obsolete has been added as yet. Either way, the way forward is to replace centos-release-SCL with centos-release-scl and get access to the newer SCL packages.
