Apache Tomcat package / lookup the package name across all repositories

Post by dreael » 2019/09/25 15:40:15

On the previous CentOS 7.x release, a simple

Code: Select all

yum install tomcat
was possible. The new release doesn't support it. Even

Code: Select all

yum search tomcat
does not show any result. From the OpenVPN package I know that a

Code: Select all

yum install epel-release
must be first done, before a

Code: Select all

yum install openvpn
is possible. Because

Code: Select all

yum search openvpn
also does not show any result before installing the EPEL release, I d'like to ask for a suitable package lookup functionality which also searches inside every optional repository.

You'll find that EPEL is a work in progress. It's a bit catch-22 in that many of the developers who package for EPEL use CentOS to do so so will not have been able to build packages for el8 in advance of CentOS 8 being released...
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
