Description

The install docs point at a page that easily has install instructions for the EPEL repo rpms, but only for EL6 and EL7. We should link to this page instead:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#howtouse

This should instead read something like "Go install EPEL: <link to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL>"

History

#1 Updated by mmccune@redhat.com over 6 years ago

As an admin/user I find it useful and convenient to be able to quickly copy-paste commands from the installation docs. Perhaps have different sections for the different RHEL versions pointing to EPEL for 6 and 7:

RHEL6:

  1. rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

RHEL7:

  1. rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-1.noarch.rpm

Pointing at the upstream docs is easier but if you are trying to digest all the steps necessary to get Pulp running it can be easier if you can see all the necessary commands on one page.

#3 Updated by pthomas@redhat.com over 6 years ago

This needs to be fixed again.

The link for rhel7 epel repo does not work.

What is in the doc is

https://pulp-user-guide.readthedocs.org/en/latest/installation.html#repositories

$ sudo rpm -Uvh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-2.noarch.rpm

#6 Updated by igulina@redhat.com over 6 years ago

The link on EPEL7 was fixed

https://github.com/pulp/pulp/blob/master/docs/user-guide/installation.rst

For RHEL and CentOS systems, the EPEL repositories are required. Following commands will add the appropriate repositories for RHEL6 and RHEL7 respectively:
RHEL6:
$ sudo rpm -Uvh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
RHEL7:
$ sudo rpm -Uvh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-5.noarch.rpm

Note

The above EPEL URLs change with each release of the epel-release package. If you receive a 404 error when attempting to install the above RPM, point your browser at the directory it is in and look for the updated name of epel-release package.
