This is a similar question to: How to enable PowerTools repository in CentOS 8?
I am trying to to setup a headless web server on my EC2 AWS running on RHEL 8.2. As it is a headless server with no GUI, I just need to the firefox browser to do some web configurations. With that said, on on the client side, I am using Putty to SSH to the server remotely and Xming to display the browser. I think PowerTools is needed in order to install
xorg-x11-apps in RHEL 8.2 in my case to get the display installed in my VM so that I can run my firefox remotely via Putty SSH.
On the Side note:
(On Server Side)
- Installed firefox and prerequisite packages
- Installed xauth & xorg-x11*
- Configured /etc/ssh/ssh_config (FowardX11 yes, FowardX11Trusted yes)
- Configured /etc/ssh/sshd_config (X11Forwarding yes)
- export DISPLAY=ip:0.0
(On Client Side - PuTTy)
- Installed and configured XMing
- SSH with X Forwarding via Putty (With X11Forwarding enabled & X Display Location to :0.0)
I installed epel:
$ yum install dnf-plugins-core $ dnf -y install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm $ yum install epel-release
But when I tried to enable PowerTools, I received the following error:
$ dnf config-manager --set-enabled PowerTools Error: Unknown repo: 'PowerTools'
When I checked the repo list, no PowerTools is installed:
$ yum repolist repo id repo name epel Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 8 - x86_64 epel-modular Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux Modular 8 - x86_64 rhel-8-appstream-rhui-rpms Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 for x86_64 - AppStream from RHUI (RPMs) rhel-8-baseos-rhui-rpms Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 for x86_64 - BaseOS from RHUI (RPMs) rhui-client-config-server-8 Red Hat Update Infrastructure 3 Client Configuration Server 8
How do I go around this so that I can enable PowerTools so that I can run the
dnf config-manager --set-enabled PowerTools command?
