I don't have a subscription for RHEL anymore and I want to update my server. Can anyone tell me How to Update Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 using CentOS Repos ?

Ok i figured out. I created a file CentOs.repo (/etc/yum.repos.d/CentOs.repo) with the following contents :

[CentOS-Base]
name=CentOS-Base
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=$basearch&repo=os
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5

[CentOS-Updates]
name=CentOS-Updates
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=$basearch&repo=updates
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5

[CentOS-Plus]
name=CentOS-Plus
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=$basearch&repo=centosplus
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5

IIRC, you just install the approprate centos-release package, and then run yum upgrade (or yum update if you don't want to obsolete anything).

  • yum update and yum upgrade do the same thing; yum update has an option for obsoletes which defaults to the same setting that yum upgrade uses. You can change the default with an option to yum update.

    This is not an official CentOS repository. It is RPMForge Apr 16, 2010 at 11:32
