CentOS 3 Comments

greetings to one and all.

a new iso burn w/ CentOS 6.8 failed to boot on a 686 32 bit mid tower box, but will boot a 32 bit laptop, so i dropped back to 6.7 which did boot.

after install with CentOS 6.7, attempt to upgrade fails with ‘repolist 0’.

all desire repo files have enable = 1.

searched thru past 4 yrs of personal archives, nothing found related to
‘repolist 0’.

ran web search for ‘repolist 0’ and ‘repolist = 0’ with all hits related to repo files having ‘enable = 0’.

any suggestions/ideas/clues as to solution of problem greatly appreciated.

    made a file by file comparison between 2 systems of yum directories, both have same files. i did not go thru /lib and /var files.

    side-note: tried to add this gmail account to thunderbird, ran into problems with gmail. next replies may be with a diff account setup using thunderbird.
