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.

List repository content

yum list

or search something more specifically like the "gcc" available

yum list gcc*

Install something

yum install <put-the-name-here>

Ex:

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

Reinstall Something

yum install <put-the-name-here>

Ex:

yum reinstall coreutils

Update all the stuff you have installed

yum update

Install RPM

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 running from a command line the following:

yum install netlabs-exp

It can also be set manually by creating a file under:

x:\etc\yum\repos.d\netlabs-exp.repo

with content:

[netlabs-exp]
name=Netlabs experimental repository $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=http://rpm.netlabs.org/experimental/$releasever/$basearch/
enabled=1

Where can I get the binary files of the netlabs repository if I don't use RPM

The netlabs release and experimental repositories files are available on the following site:

Those can be downloaded as zip files.

Clean

yum clean all

Check

This command check is the dependencies of the packaged are installed correctly.

yum check

RebuildDB

If your RPM database got corrupted you can use:

rpm --rebuilddb

Installation

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".
  • Reboot.
  • 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.

Troubleshooting

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.

Possible Solution

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
