Installing packages from yum repositories¶
yum section allows you to install or remove packages using
yum package manager.
Make sure that your system is registered with subscription manager before trying to install packages otherwise you’ll get an error while following the steps below.
Create an empty file and give it any arbitrary name. For the purpose of this
demonstration, let’s call our file
install_packages.conf. Add the following
lines to your newly created config file:
# To install package(s): # Make sure you have the appropriate values in all the placeholders shown in this configuration file. # These values are just for demonstration purposes. [yum] action=install repos=<reponames> packages=vi,glusterfs gpgcheck=no update=no # Explanation of the above parameters # packages # -------- # This takes a comma separate list of values that are packages names you # wish to install. # gpgcheck # -------- # gpgcheck is set to `yes` by default. You can override it # by setting it to `no` as illustrated above. # update # ------- # By default, gdeploy runs `yum update` before installation. To disable # this behaviour, set update=no as shown above. The default value is `yes`. # To remove package(s): # [yum] # action=remove # packages=vi
As always, to invoke gdeploy run the following command:$ gdeploy -c install_packages.conf
