  • I know that the epel folks are trying to make it much easier for people to request and contribute / maintain builds in EPEL – it might be a good time to raise this issue and see if there is something you can help with.

  • could everybody be so kind as to decipher your abbreviations…

  • Thanks, John! Yes, I do use Linux for about that long, yet I needed your kind help here. It sort of reminds me about one person I know: native English speaker, who was born in US, graduated high school will pretty good grades. And she hadn’t any idea what “SUV” stands for… (Sports Utility Vehicle I definitely should add here to be consistent myself). She new what that SUV thing looks like. And if you give _me_ the long list like: ABC, NFL, NHL, CBS, BCC, DMZ,…, then of those abbr. which I have heard and recognize I will only be able to expand into what they stand only half of them. Which I feel no shame about. We do save time using them. But: if you want me to understand you, put it the way I don’t have to decipher anything.

    Thanks again for your help!

  • Heh, I had to look it up too when it was first appearing in connection with, if I remember correctly, CentOS 6, or maybe earlier–or maybe later.

    Shucks, I remember when I was studying for Cisco exams in the early double oughts, would see things like ATM here, and think, Wow, they must offer high speed Internet.

    I never feel embarrassment about not knowing acronyms anymore. Of course, I’ve been married more than once, so I’m also fairly inured to criticism.
    :)

  • This is the most you would need to do:

    yum clean all

    From then on, all the packages in EPEL will be available for you to install just like the core packages are.

    Cheers

  • You mean run only this command or run first the command sudo rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/beta/7/x86_64/epel-release-7-0.2.noarch.rpm and then yum clean all? I try the command sudo rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/beta/7/x86_64/epel-release-7-0.2.noarch.rpm and I got error since file doesn’t exists “curl: (22) The requested URL
    returned error: 404 Not Found” so what other thing I should try?

    Cheers and thanks
