Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In /etc/yum.repos.d/puppet.repo have I put

name=Puppet Labs Packages

and when I do

yum info puppet-server

it doesn't mention puppet-server-3.0.0-0.1rc3 as being an option despite it is in the repository http://yum.puppetlabs.com/el/6/devel/x86_64/

What am I doing wrong?

Using CentOS 6.3 64bit.

rpm -Uvh http://yum.puppetlabs.com/el/6/devel/x86_64/puppetlabs-release-devel-6-1.noarch.rpm

No idea, why this works, but it does.

All it contains are

[root@puppet ~]# rpm -ql puppetlabs-release-devel-6-1

[root@puppet ~]# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/puppetlabs-devel.repo
name=Puppet Labs Devel 6 - $basearch

It adds the puppetlabs-devel repo to yum. Once it's there, you can manage packages from the puppet dev channel within your standard yum setup. –  cjc Jul 20 '12 at 11:46
The only difference I can see is the baseurl which should resolve to the same? –  Sandra Jul 20 '12 at 11:59
Hmm, good point. –  cjc Jul 20 '12 at 12:15
