RE: [Spacewalk-list] A Couple Questions...



Got it - I missed one subtle yet crucial step when following the How-To:

yum install yum-rhn-plugin

now to tackle osad/jabberd.

Any insights into the errors I've been getting with that?  I have the following in /var/log/osad over and over:

jabber_lib.main: Unable to connect to jabber servers, sleeping 97 seconds

Thanks again!

Yes, I followed that particular How-To.  I have disabled my repos in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory.  I have disabled base and updates, leaving others enabled (like epel, which I am not hosting out of spacewalk yet).It only checks those remaining.  Do I need to create a new repository config that points at spacewalk?

The option I preferred to disabling the repos was to change the yum.conf:

reposdir=/etc/yum.repos.d/custom

That way, you're never going to get caught out by a package creating a new repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d/
