  • Yum on Centos 5 VPS Template
  • I'm a Centos 4 guy - I haven't quite taken the leap to 5 (why??!), and today I helped a customer with their Centos 5 VPS template. The Centos 5 template comes pretty bare-bones, without even Yum installed. So, in order to get anything done, the first order of business is to get Yum working. Here's the packages you'll need to download and install to get Yum installed on your Centos 5 VPS:
    1. wget http://centos.mirror.nac.net/5.0/os/i386/CentOS/python-elementtree-1.2.6-5.i386.rpm
    2. rpm -Uvh python-elementtree-1.2.6-5.i386.rpm
    3. wget http://centos.mirror.nac.net/5.0/os/i386/CentOS/python-sqlite-1.1.7-1.2.1.i386.rpm
    4. rpm -Uvh python-sqlite-1.1.7-1.2.1.i386.rpm
    5. wget http://centos.mirror.nac.net/5.0/os/i386/CentOS/rpm-python-4.4.2-37.el5.i386.rpm
    6. rpm -Uvh rpm-python-4.4.2-37.el5.i386.rpm
    7. wget http://centos.mirror.nac.net/5.0/os/i386/CentOS/m2crypto-0.16-6.el5.1.i386.rpm
    8. rpm -Uvh m2crypto-0.16-6.el5.1.i386.rpm
    9. wget http://centos.mirror.nac.net/5.0/os/i386/CentOS/python-urlgrabber-3.1.0-2.noarch.rpm
    10. rpm -Uvh python-urlgrabber-3.1.0-2.noarch.rpm
    11. wget http://centos.mirror.nac.net/5.0/os/i386/CentOS/yum-3.0.5-1.el5.centos.2.noarch.rpm
    12. rpm -Uvh yum-3.0.5-1.el5.centos.2.noarch.rpm
