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



if you use the frozen 6.5 you wont get any more updates, unless you realllly need to pointing to the symlink ones better. Also rather than using the web interface in future you can use

/usr/bin/spacewalk-common-channels -v -u admin -p pass -a x86_64 -k unlimited 'centos7*' 'spacewalk-client*'
Which deals with adding channels and repos like magic :)

Amedeo,

For the 6.5 base I used the URL path:

http://mirror.centos.org/centos-6/6.5/os/x86_64/

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

http://mirror.centos.org/centos-6/6.5/updates/x86_64/

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.

Daryl

@daryl
did you use relative path for specifically centos 6.5 like:

/mirrors/CentOS/6.5

or you use generic 6 version? like:

/mirrors/CentOS/6

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

best regards
