This is a bit above me.

I use SME 7.3  (which is built on CentOS 4.6) as inhouse production
server, and then I have my (soon to colocate) test server, which
currently runs CentOS 5.1 64.
How would I test an rpm on an already running system?

rpm --test

and the proposed  for testing dependencies: rpm --justdb --root
/tmp/tempath/ package1, package2

What I have done till now, is todo a base install, and then create only
use the files installed (as per /installation.log) in my new CD. There's
still quite a few programs that I don't need and could probably delete
them from the CentOS folder on the CD, but I still need to figure out
how these file are installed. I saw the repodata/comps.xml file, but
it's LONG, and have a lot of different languages, not some something I
can take on right now. It's almost easier to run something like "yum
remove {package-name} from the kickstart file

	You can put "-package" at %packages

	In order to have a minimal one just test with "%packages --nobase"
and begin adding packages you find missing on the target system (ssh, joe,

	Have a look at the --root trick to check all "really" required
files ;)



Ok, this project didn't work as well as I thought. So, I installed an "empty" system, without any repositories as well. I'm going to take a new approach, and install xen, kernel-xen virt-manager & virsh via yum and then use that to build up my rpm list to work with.

So, which repositories do I need on CentOS 5.1 x64 to install xen?
