Configuring YUM for DAG

Don't know what DAG is yet, but this is good for adding more packages: (libnet is needed by nessus) Add this to bottom of /etc/yum.conf: [dag] name=Dag RPM Repository for Fedora Core baseurl=http://apt.sw.be/fedora/$releasever/en/$basearch/dag (This on the page http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/apt/FAQ.php#B) Then do the following to find the pkg. note that when i do yum install later down, it picks the latest one. :) [root@localhost etc]# yum search libnet Searching Packages: Setting up Repo: dag repomd.xml 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00 Setting up Repo: base repomd.xml 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00 Setting up Repo: updates-released repomd.xml 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00 Reading repository metadata in from local files primary.xml.gz 100% |=========================| 566 kB 00:01 MD Read : #################################################…

Red Hat Fedora Core 3 YUM

YUM is great. Here's the first time I used it to install a package needed by nessus: YUM solves dependencies and everything (see gtk install lower half). [root@localhost ~]# sh nessus-installer.sh The script needs uudecode(1) to run properly Install the package 'sharutils-*.rpm' [root@localhost ~]# yum install sharutils Setting up Install Process Setting up Repo: base repomd.xml 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00 Setting up Repo: updates-released repomd.xml 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00 Reading repository metadata in from local files primary.xml.gz 100% |=========================| 797 kB 00:03 MD Read : ################################################## 2623/2623 base : ################################################## 2622/2622 primary.xml.gz 100% |=========================| 207 kB 00:10 MD Read : ################################################## 463/4…

Using RedHat Fedora FC3

Been using this for a few weeks did several installs. there was some wierdness on 3 machines... 1. Installing on a Dell Inspiron 8600, the install hung several times. I powered off and tried again and it was fine again. The system has been perfect ever since and works great. 2.) During install on a Dell Inspiron 7500, the install hung during CD1. I started over and it went fine until CD3, where there was a read error and I had to clean some stuff off the disk. Since then it was fine and the system now works great, although there is no sound. Maybe these lockups are all related to media issues. I am using a copy I burned. 3.) One machine my CD3 was bad (burner error, the whole disk was actually blank) and I left the machine sitting there for 3 days until I got a new copy. When I finally continued, the install finished but after the reboot there is some video wierdness like when I go to Applications/System Tools, the menu there is empty (I am root). I was going to reintsall, bu…
