Update 09.09.2014: Updated to epel release 7-2 Update 06.12.2014: Updated the Epel 7-2 location Update 31.07.2015: Updated to Epel 7-5 location CentOS 7 is out and based on CentOS 6.X: How To Install The EPEL Repository here is EPEL for Centos 7.x All commands are to be executed as root. rpm -Uvh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-5.noarch.rpm There is also an update for a repo called remi which is also providing some bleeding edge packages and updates. This is highly optional and not related to EPEL. If you like to install that one, here we go. rpm -Uvh http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm To enable certain remi repositories use vi and set enabled=1 where it applies vi /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo Related posts: CentOS 6.x: How to install the EPEL repository CentOS 6.x: VMware Repo for VMware tools x86_64 RedHat 6.x / CentOS 6.x: How to Install ZFS native Linux: Howto show the Servers IP address at the login console RedHat 6.x/CentOS 6.x: Rename RHN Satellite (Spacewalk) […]

If you need to install the vmware tools for CentOS 6.x as a repo then: rpm –import http://packages.vmware.com/tools/keys/VMWARE-PACKAGING-GPG-RSA-KEY.pub vi /etc/yum.repos.d/VMWare-Tools.repo insert [vmware-tools] name=VMware Tools baseurl=http://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/latest/rhel6/x86_64 #baseurl=http://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/4.1latest/rhel6/i686 enabled=1 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=http://packages.vmware.com/tools/keys/VMWARE-PACKAGING-GPG-RSA-KEY.pub This will point to the latest release for Centos 6.X_X64 then: To select a specific version of ESX you can browse the path to select different directories. yum -y install vmware-tools-services vmware-tools-esx-nox vmware-tools-pvscsi-common vmware-tools-plugins-autoUpgrade vmware-tools-plugins-guestInfo vmware-tools-plugins-powerOps vmware-tools-plugins-timeSync Now this might be a quick and dirty solution to get the latest tools from the repo. However, ESX doesn’t like it and will show them as (?) Running (3rd-party/Independent)” which means it won’t auto-update the tools. it might be better to mount the vmware tools from the ESX Server and after unpacking them to run vmware-install.pl -d to install unattended with the defaults.   Related posts: Linux / VMware: Howto Increase a / (Root) LVM partition on a single vmdk without adding another […]

It is from time to time useful to have the EPEL repository from Fedora enabled under CentOS in order to get the additional and latest and greatest packages and updates. Here is how to do so. All commands are to be executed as root. Firstly we install wget in case its not yet installed and then we get the packages and apply them to the system. rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm There is another repo called remi also providing some bleeding edge packages and updates. This is highly optional and not related to EPEL. If you like to install that one, here we go. rpm -Uvh http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm We need to enable the repo now. vi /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo feel free to enabled=1 the remi and the remi testing channels [remi] name=Les RPM de remi pour Enterprise Linux 6 – $basearch #baseurl=http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/6/remi/$basearch/ mirrorlist=http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/6/remi/mirror enabled=0 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-remi [remi-test] name=Les RPM de remi en test pour Enterprise Linux 6 – $basearch #baseurl=http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/6/test/$basearch/ mirrorlist=http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/6/test/mirror enabled=0 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-remi Related posts: CentOS 7.X: […]

I constantly get annoyed when I add a new repository and get for example an: GPG error: http://archive.getdeb.net oneiric-getdeb Release: The following signatures couldn’t be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A8A515F046D7E7CF If you are good you have anywhere handy the command: wget -q -O- http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add – to add the key for the particular repository. I rarely am that good so I have to run: sudo apt-key adv –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com –recv-keys A8A515F046D7E7CF And off I go… Related posts: Ubuntu: Some Usefull Commands Hardware lister lshw Ubunty Unity-2D Unity optimisation RedHat / Ubuntu / Solaris / Linux: Slow SSH logins (5 second delay) Ubuntu / Mint: Install latest Nvidia drivers
