I have a running CentOS 6.5 64-bit system running and i like to have a CentOS 7 chrooted system inside. Ive done that chroot environment as described in http://www.jefftk.com/p/32-bit-chroot-on-CentOS

Now my problem ist that yum is not working as i suggested:

bash-4.2# yum install sudo Geladene Plugins: fastestmirror http://mirror.CentOS.org/CentOS/7/os/i386/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14]
HTTP Error 404 – Not Found Anderer Spiegelserver wird versucht.

One of the configured repositories failed (CentOS-7 – Base), and yum doesn’t have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work “fix” this:

1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the problem.

2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working
upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
packages for the previous distribution release still work).

3. Disable the repository, so yum won’t use it by default. Yum will then
just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it again or use
–enablerepo for temporary usage:

yum-config-manager –disable base

4. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.
Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,
so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be be much
slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is often a nice

yum-config-manager –save –setopt
