Just had a quick play on a CentOS 4.4 test box - which is a PE 430SC.
Using the copy-and paste method for rhn/up2date works fine - grabbed
and put it on the end of /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources and now up2date -l
tells me that there's a newer xgi_Xorg rpm available than the one I've
got installed. Cool!
Not so successful with the yum method, but I'm not so familiar with
yum so it is probably me doing something daft.
I got the EPEL rpms just directly- didn't bother enabling that repo
(maybe my mistake, but I doubt that?) -
rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/4/i386/firmware-addon-dell-1.2.6-1.el4.noarch.rpm
then I got the dell autosys repo for el4:
Then I edited /etc/yum.conf and add plugins=1 to switch them on.
Now if I try yum check-update I get this error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in ?
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 80, in main
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/cli.py", line 196, in getOptionsConfig
File "__init__.py", line 157, in doPluginSetup

File "plugins.py", line 191, in _loadplugin
File "/usr/lib/yum-plugins/dellsysidplugin.py", line 11, in ?
from yum.yumRepo import YumRepository
ImportError: No module named yumRepo
Anyone any ideas what I've done wrong?
Even with my mistake, it seems like an excellent system!!
