6.10 vault config

Post by invade » 2020/12/02 11:57:17

Hi.
I see that the active repos have gone:
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/readme

Will there be a final update to the centos-release package that removes the active repo definitions and includes 6.10 repo definitions pointing to the vault:
https://vault.centos.org/6.10/

or do we have to manually remove / add the entries if we have to continue using CentOS 6 for a period of time?

Thanks.

I would presume that "no more support" means "no support".

I am running the following as a, hopefully, temporary work around:

Code: Select all

sed -i -e 's/^mirrorlist/#mirrorlist/g' -e 's/^#baseurl=http:\/\/mirror.centos.org\/centos\/$releasever\//baseurl=http:\/\/vault.centos.org\/6.10\//g' /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo

No, we will not be shipping repo files pointing to vault. The machines that run vault belong to CentOS itself, the ones for the mirror network are donated by people with lots of bandwidth. The vault nodes don't have sufficient bandwidth to allow all late migrators to poll for non-existent updates - and there aren't any so there's not much point in polling for them anyway.
if we have to continue using CentOS 6 for a period of time
It's dead. Get off it like yesterday. There's been an EOL notice prominently displayed on the top of the forums page for about a year saying "get migrating now".
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
