Have not had any updates to Centos 5.5
 
I am running Centos 5.5 (2.6.18-238.19.1.el5 and when I submit

yum -y update

I get the message that nothing is marked for update. Is this
correct or is there something wrong with the system?

Many thanks...

Todd

If you are using the CR repo ensure the yum priority in that file is 1
(the same as in the Base repo). Then retry

yum update

Paul -

Unfortunately, I am not fully aware of all of yum's settings and
functions. Could you give me a little more detail or point me to
the appropriate MAN page?

(1) Many of us on 5.6 have installed to /etc/yum.repos.d an extra file
for an extra, probably temporary, new repository called 'CR'. Unsure
what CR means but it might be 'Continuous Revision'.

(2) You write you are on 5.5 so I am unsure whether the 'CR' repo is
also for you. No doubt others will enlighten us.

(3) The contents of the CR repo are (the file name is your own choice):-

# CentOS-CR.repo
#
# The continuous release ( CR ) repository contains rpms from the
# next point release of CentOS, which isnt itself released as yet.
#
# Look at http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR
# for more details about how this repository works and what users
# should expect to see included / excluded

[cr]
name=CentOS-$releasever - CR
baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/cr/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5
priorities=1

(4) As you will notice, in the file is a link for further information.

(5) If this file is for your 5.5, then install it then do a


yum update


and you should see things being installed.

Regards,

Paul.

kernel 2.6.18-238.19.1 is a 5.6 kernel. What does 'rpm -qa
centos-release' say?

if your box is full up-to-date, I would not expect you to see any
updates pending unless you've configured the cr/ repo for el5.

Sorry, I just couldn't resist pointing out that it's "Continuous
Release" like it says in your #3 ;)

Many thanks! Installed and now it is performing 118 updates.

Out of curiosity, how should I have known about this addition to
yum? I am not an active Linux server user in that, Centos just
runs and runs providing me with FTP and HTTP that is used to
share photographs with others and exchange source code for
projects. So, every once in a while, something comes up where I
need some assistance, and all of you have been so helpful - and
patient.

It was announced either on this list and/or on the Centos Announcements
list. Centos Announcements has very low traffic and is a useful list to
subscribe to.

That is the inherent advantage of Centos. It just runs and runs reliably
and, of course, its not Windoze :-)

Everyone, everywhere, occasionally needs some friendly help - me too.

Regards,

Paul.
