On my CentOS 6.2, this worked: sudo yum install httpd-tools

Use the EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) repository. The easiest way to enable it is by installing the epel-release package. Here's how if you have RHEL 5 x86_64: [root@localhost]# rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/x86_64/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm [root@localhost]# yum install git

I just had to install this on my CentOS 6 server since psycopg2 required pg_config. Boo yah: yum install postgresql-devel Update If you still encounter issues with pg_config, you may need to add it to your PATH, e.g.: export PATH=$PATH:/usr/pgsql-x.x/bin where x.x is your version, such as /usr/pgsql-9.2./bin.

You can use: yum -y install packagename The "-y" implies "yes".

The correct fix is to update your SSL certificates. sudo yum upgrade ca-certificates --disablerepo=epel You need to disable the epel repo so that this command will succeed. After you update your certificates you can use yum normally as EPEL will work again.

Whats with the syntax of something followed by parentheses? From http://jfearn.fedorapeople.org/en-US/RPM/0.1/html/RPM_Guide/ch-advanced-packaging.html: Scripting languages such as Perl and Tcl allow for add-on modules. Your package may require some of these add-on modules. RPM uses a special syntax with parenthesis to indicate script ...

Actually I found it, it's /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk.x86_64/. I found out what it was by doing update-alternatives --display java and it showed me the directory /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk.x86_64/bin/java

Yum supports plugins, so it's entirely possible to write a plugin that reads the cached puppet manifest and warns when a transaction will overwrite a puppet-controlled file. I'm not aware of an existing plugin that does this, but I will probably write just wrote one myself as I like the idea. The plugin checks all newly installed/upgraded/downgraded ...

Some packages are held by more than one repository. The priorities plugin choose packages from the highest-priority repository, excluding duplicate entries from other repos.

From what I understand, this error is generated from the priorities plugin as noted by Pawel. In 2009, the maintainer of yum mentioned that he hoped people would not use priorities. To disable the priorities plugin, edit /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/priorities.conf and set enabled = 0. After this change, next time you run yum update, you should not get any ...

Generally speaking speaking security updates are considered to be somewhat safe, particularly for a distribution with goals like RedHat. Their core focus is creating an operating environment that is consistent. As such the maintainers tend to pick versions of packages and stick with them for the long haul. To see what I mean look at the versions of such ...

I followed the instructions from Install Apache/PHP 5.4.10 on Fedora 17/16, CentOS/RHEL 6.3/5.8 with a slight modification. It took maybe 10min. My exact commands are shown below. Note that the first command had to be changed from what is shown in the article. The change was from epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm to epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm. How to add a repo ...

What version of yum? On the current version if the installed package is the same version as the most recent one available then the repo it was installed from is shown. $ yum info irssi Installed Packages Name : irssi Arch : i586 Version : 0.8.14 Release : 1.fc11 Size : 2.3 M Repo : installed From repo : updates Summary : ...

The package is called postgresql-libs on Red Hat and derived distributions.

Pick a mirror from the list of CentOS 6 mirrors and install the packages you need using rpm. You would need to deal with dependencies. Lucky for you, I have a pretty bare VM with CentOS 6 x86_64 installed. I snapshot the VM, ran yum remove python and had some fun getting through some circular dependencies. Final result: # --nodeps: because of circular ...

You can discover which package contains the program you want using yum provides: yum provides /usr/bin/ab Then you will see that ab is in the httpd-tools package. And now you can install it: yum install httpd-tools

There are at least two reasons for rebooting: You probably want to use the advantages of the newer version (security fixes) Usually during a kernel update the module tree of the old kernel is removed. Thus if you (or some script) unload a module then the system cannot load it again because it finds only the newer one on disk (if at all) and this is ...

In order to run 2.2.x you would either need to source another RPM - or build it from source. I would suspect however since you are running 2.2.3 that you are running RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 or one of its derivatives (CentOS 5 etc). You will find that a sizeable number of penetration testing companies or security officers don't take into account that ...

You could just build from the sources. The following worked for me (although you may not want to do the update or install every package in "Development tools" and "Additional Development"): sudo yum update sudo yum groupinstall "Development tools" sudo yum groupinstall "Additional Development" wget ...

Your general update strategy is sound: You have a local repo (which I assume you test in a dev environment), and you update everything based of that (I assume known good) repo. The service restart thing is inevitable: If the underlying code has changed you need to restart the service for that change to take effect. Failing to do so can lead to worse ...

You are using the EPEL 5 version of the repo instead of 6, go into your /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo file and change: mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=epel-5&arch=$basearch to mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=epel-6&arch=$basearch Then run yum clean all and then try and install munin again. ...

Don't do it. ReiserFS is not regarded as a good filesystem option these days and may not be under active development. You have several other solid filesystem options here in 2012. Are you trying to solve a particular problem? If so, XFS, btrfs, maybe even tuning of your ext4, may be better ideas for supportability and compatibility. Oh yeah, and there's ...

The best thing to do would be to find libssl.so.10 from a working computer running the same version of openssl that you were (a different centos machine running the same version should be sufficient), and use a USB stick to copy the file back into place.

yum update originally just did upgrades of packages to new versions. If, for example, foo-awesome obsoleted foo, yum update wouldn't offer to upgrade from foo to foo-awesome. Adding the --obsoletes flag to yum update made it do the extra checks to also offer that upgrade path. yum upgrade was added as (essentially) an alias for yum --obsoletes update. ...

There are two cases: If a file was installed as part of a rpm, it is a config file (i.e. marked with the %config tag), you've edited the file afterwards and you now update the rpm then the new config file (from the newer rpm) will replace your old config file (i.e. become the active file). The latter will be renamed with the .rpmsave suffix. If a file was ...
