|mishehu||what is the preferred way to keep a system up-to-date? up2date? yum?|
excuse the newb question, I come from a world without this type of package management.
|so_||mishehu, yum is the Centos updater|
you can use up2date if you like, but ultimately on Centos it would use yum as it's backend
|jbt||mishehu: do yourself a favor by reading man yum first, to avoid the usual pitfull|
|mishehu||ugh, these putzes at dotster's vps hosting site couldn't install centos if their life counted on it.|
they didn't put either one on.
"let's give you root access to a system, but make you jump hoops in order to install anything on it, including subversion"
thanks for the pointer guys
I'll put together the dependencies for yum from the centos 4 install.
at least they put rpm on the system...
|so_||mishehu, many vpses either have their own updating system, or they remove the standard utils because of heavy customizing|
or reason X, Y or Z, I don't know for sure
well if they don't want you to do that level of customizing they should out a policy about that. heh. they didn't.
as it was I had a heck of a time getting php5 on it.
|so_||you might not even have rpm, although it's fun to play with rpm2cpio for that :)|
|mishehu||nah, I do have rpm.|
I just had a heck of a time finding the right rpms for php5. heh.
|so_||ah, there is a repo that is hosting php5 rpms I can't recall which one|
CentosPlus I think
|mishehu||I already forgot where I got them from, but that might be it.|
donno why they didn't call it Centos++ ;-)
hmm since when does subversion have a dependency on guile? odd. I've built that from source several times...
hmm that yum does make it nice though.
|jbt||mishehu: put something, protect plugin for yum if ever you intend to use other repos|
|mishehu||jbt: I'll try to avoid doing that for now. what does the protect plugin do?|
|mishehu||jbt: thanks for the tip|
thought it was just all under #web.
|fatalexe||Well, i'm wrestling with doing a php/mysql HTM_AJAX app for a final project for my associates in programming. Just got subversion working, trying to wrestle up a good first commit|
Hosting it at home from my dsl has been great. ^.^ I feel sorry for all the other students using XAMPP and whatnot win32 server junk....
|mishehu||svn commit -m "Commit me to the insane asylum! ha ha hee hee ho ho!"|
|fatalexe||Wouldn't that be the code to pay-pals credit card payment gateway?|
|JoBbZ||Is there a web searchable list of the RPMs included in CentOS? In particular, I'm looking for tomcat, jboss, and mod_jk|
|peerce||there's no java other than gcc-java in centos, as its not GPL|
