Unable to install from Extras repo

Post by trukit0 » 2011/07/19 18:48:12


I have installed CentOS 6 in two machines.

Almost everything is OK, except I need install packages present in Extras repo (drbd8, kmod-drbd8, etc.) but any mirrors seems to have no content for "extras" folder.

Why that repo isn't available? It will be available soon? There's another form to install these packages without moving out to Centos 5.x releases? (eg. Are these packages available through CentOS 6 DVDs?)

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the [i]CentOS[/i] fora.

The recommended reading for all new members starts with the [url=https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewforum.php?forum=54]FAQ & Readme First[/url].

As to your issue with non-existent packages in the [i]CentOS-Extras[/i] repository, I think you will find what you require in the [url=http://elrepo.org]ELRepo Project[/url]'s repository . . . ;-)
