I figured it out - I grabbed the 0.8.6 source and simply did make install, and this includes the proper libraries.  I'm off and running now, just need to wait for updates to download.  Thanks!

How did you install mrepo? using 'make install' or an RPM, or other?

I've tried this, but get:
# gensystemid -u <myrhnusername> -p '<myrhnpassword>' --release=4ES --arch=i386 /opt/apps/spacewalk/mrepo/4ES-i386

And get a python traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/gensystemid", line 8, in ?
    from up2date_client import config, rpcServer, up2dateErrors
ImportError: No module named up2date_client

Any ideas?

Thanks Rob, I'll give that a try. I have a whole drawer full of EL4 workstation entitlements, so that won't be a problem.

As long as you have entitlements RHEL is easy.

Use mrepo to download the files. Here's my quick document on it.


- tar xvf mrepo-0.8.6.tar
- cd mrepo-0.8.6/ && make install
- cp rhel4es.conf /etc/mrepo.conf.d
- cp mrepo.conf /etc/
- vi /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources
	- add : up2date default
- add up2date-uuid
	- uuidgen
	- vi /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-uuid/
		- add: rhnuuid=4a9179f7-b462-497e-b40a-1876df68a530
5. Generate SystemIDs'
	- gensystemid -u <RHNLogin> -p <RHNPassword> --release=4ES
--arch=i386 /opt/apps/spacewalk/mrepo/4ES-i386/
	- gensystemid -u <RHNLogin> -p <RHNPassword>  --release=4AS
--arch=x86_64 /opt/apps/spacewalk/mrepo/4AS-x86_64/

6. Download Content
	- rhnget --download-all -s /opt/apps/spacewalk/mrepo/4ES-i386/systemid
-vv rhns:///rhel-i386-es-4 /opt/apps/spacewalk/rpms/rhel4es-i386/
