Install yum

From OpenVZ Linux Containers Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This article is specific to CentOS, however the packages required for yum here are the same on other flavors

The scripts shown below install all the packages upon which yum depends for a 386 distro (Need separate 64 bit instructions)

Please note - that the version numbers of the packages WILL change as later releases come out, it is up to you to ensure that the packages used are the latest. If you find a package in this script has become deprecated, please update this page with the latest package so others do not have to search for it as well.

  • Hint: If it doesn't work later on, look for updated packages in http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/
  • libxml2-python-2.6.26-2.1.21.el5_9.3.i386.rpm is optional and yum worked without it
  • yum-utils may also be added if needed
