Re: [Spacewalk-list] Follow up question to solaris2mpm

I never used sparc repositories, and for this I can make a mistake, but logically you can't define a repository/ies and define only a channels (with sparc option on arch) and then you will push your packages by using rhnpush -> so you will use a repo if you have an upstream that will be on sync to your spacewalk
