Create a Local Yum Repository for Oracle Linux 6 - Learn how to create a local Yum repository for Oracle Linux 6.

As of Oracle Linux 6.5 (and maybe earlier but 6.5 is what I used) the repository names need to be prefixed with public_

For example, the reposync command is now:

/usr/bin/reposync --repoid=public_ol6_latest --repoid=public_ol6_UEK_latest -p /repo/OracleLinux/usr/bin/reposync --repoid=public_ol6_latest --repoid=public_ol6_UEK_latest -p /repo/OracleLinux

Hi.

Yes. They've changed the name of the repositories. I've altered the article to bring it in line.

Cheers

Thanks, Tim!

And thanks very much for writing this stuff up. It's a huge help for us.

Looks like, if you're using SELinux, you'll need to set the security context for the repo files:

chcon -R -t httpd_sys_content_t /repo/OracleLinux

I've got this in my refresh script now.

FYI, I also had to:

cp /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle /var/www/html/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-ol6

Hi.

I made a note of the SELinux config I would expect if that were being used.

I don't have the issue with the "RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-ol6" file.

Cheers
