Re: [K12OSN] broken link in k12ltsp.repo?



Try looking in /etc/yum.repos.d/k12ltsp.repo and see if that file has the correct path info in it.  On my system (K12LTSP 4.2EL), it reads as follows.  Note that the path is version-specific.

[microman takhisis yum.repos.d]$ more k12ltsp.repo
[k12ltsp]
name=K12LTSP
mirrorlist=http://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/mirrors/k12ltsp-4.2EL-32bit
gpgkey=http://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/K12LTSP-GPG-KEY
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

[microman takhisis yum.repos.d]$

Do you mean /etc/k12ltsp-release?  That's the only k12ltsp* file in /etc. It just shows 'K12LTSP release 5.0.0EL-0.2'; I tried changing the 5.0.0 to 5.2.0 but it made no difference.  I did a yum update, had some problems, ran yum update again, and then the update ran to completion.  However, it appears the k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us site is down: when I try to install fltk-devel I'm now getting this:

Ideas?

Check in /etc for a file called k12ltsp-version (I think that's the
name) and bump the version number to 5.2
That _should_ be done by a full yum update run anyway.

Upon closer examination, it appears the path http://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/K12LTSP/5.0.0-EL-32bit/5.1/ has changed to http://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/K12LTSP/5.0.0-EL-32bit/5.2/ but yum doesn't seem to know it.

Further, while k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/pub/K12LTSP/ is not available over http, it is available via ftp (but that does yum no good).  It would be nice if the path were the same for both protocols.

I'm trying to install libX11-devel (to test out Robert's new version of fl_teachertool) on k12ltsp-5EL.  One of its dependencies is mesa-libGL-devel which it tries to get from http://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/K12LTSP/5.0.0-EL-32bit/5.1/.  However, the k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/K12LTSP path appears to be invalid.  I suspect it is supposed to be k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/pub/K12LTSP, which does exist.  The k12ltsp.repo simply points to the mirrorlist file at http://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/mirrors/k12ltsp-5.0EL-$basearch; in this case, $basearch is i386, and the path that this points to is the incorrect k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/K12LTSP/5.0.0-EL-32bit, incorrect because of the missing /pub/ part.  Dan or Eric, can you look at this?  Or am I misunderstanding something?
