RPM/YUM Tips on OS/2-eCS
This are some RPM/YUM general tips that I need to write somewhere to don't forget them.
- 1 List repository content
- 2 Install something
- 3 Reinstall Something
- 4 Update all the stuff you have installed
- 5 Install RPM
- 6 Installing the Netlabs Experimental Repository
- 7 Clean
- 8 Check
- 9 RebuildDB
- 10 Installation
- 11 Troubleshooting
List repository content
or search something more specifically like the "gcc" available
yum list gcc*
yum install <put-the-name-here>
yum install libc
Ex. with several packaged:
yum install libc gcc-4.4.4 gcc-4.7.3 openssl curl libjpeg libxslt libicu zlib libxml2 mmap pthread urpo libstdc++6
yum install <put-the-name-here>
yum reinstall coreutils
Update all the stuff you have installed
Sometimes RPM did not get automatically updated or installed. You can manually install them again with:
yum install rpm
Installing the Netlabs Experimental Repository
There is other repository for netlabs experimental stuff. You can use it under your risk.
This repository can be installed do doing a:
yum install netlabs-exp
It can also be set manually by creating a file under:
[netlabs-exp] name=Netlabs experimental repository $releasever - $basearch baseurl=http://rpm.netlabs.org/experimental/$releasever/$basearch/ enabled=1
yum clean all
This command check is the dependencies of the packaged are installed correctly.
If your RPM database got corrupted you can use:
This is a quick reminder on how you have to install YUM.
- Install YUM Bootstrap WPI.
- Check your paths as it ask on the readme.
- Maybe it can be good to reboot.
- Run YUM bootstrap console.
- Run "yum install yum rpm".
- Uninstall with WarpIN the YUM bootstrap.
Just to validate, open an OS/2 console and run "yum" and "yum list" to see you don't have any errors.
Some of the quick tips:
- Review any duplicated files on the Libpath between X:\ecs\dll and x:\usr
- Make a "yum clean all", sometime it works.
Error: No such table: packages
If you get this error maybe a "yum clean all" can help a little bit.

Check the duplicated files on the LIBPATH (check on eComStation Kernel on System Setup). There can be duplicated DLLs between x:\eCS\DLL and x:\usr\lib
