Re: [Spacewalk-list] How can my CentOS 6.5 be up to date?


For the 6.5 base I used the URL path:


I am in the process of adding an update channel, and I am using URL:


Are these not correct?  Should I use only http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6?

The documentation leaves a lot to be desired and doesn't provide an example of setting up the repository channel.  I found a YouTube video of a guy setting up a Spacewalk channel and repository.  He used the first URL that I posted.  Is using http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6  a better method?

Any and all suggestions made are greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

did you use relative path for specifically centos 6.5 like:


or you use generic 6 version? like:


both for base and updates, because centos repos when release new minor release will empty updates directory on the last one
