Archived from groups: comp>os>linux>setup (more info?)

On my Oracle Unbreakable systems I use the Oracle public yum repo during
my initial installations. It works patches when my clients decide
against paying for a subscription.

http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-el5.repo

I just tried searching in my RHN account for a similar public repo and
couldn't find one. One of my clients has one Red Hat host they use as
the RMAN RCAT for their backups. They let their subscription lapse and
they have no plans to renew. I'd like to apply patches. This weekend I
tried using the Oracle one but there were too many differences. There
were too many detail version differences and I ended up backing out.

I take it the nearest equivalent to the Oracle public yum repo would be
a Fedora one?

More likely CentOS. You can find a paragraph in this link
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/MigrationGuide about RHEL5 to CentOS 5 conversion.

Thanks! So it would end up being a migration of sorts either way. I'll
ponder that but since the client uses Oracle chances are I'll decide to
use the Oracle Unbreakable one at some point and put up with the version
number clashes.

It's not really a migration since all you're doing here is replacing the bits of
RHEL that deal with connecting for updates to their license protected systems
with bits that connect to CentOS's free update servers. One of CentOS's prime
aims is binary compatibility with RHEL so everything should work exactly the
same afterwards.
