Re: Setting up a local repository for RHEL 4 on a RHEL 5 box



Thanks for all the replies.

Maybe I'm asking the wrong question then? What I'm looking for is a
way to implement a good change management system with my RHEL 4 ES U4
servers.

If I use RHN and upgrade and install packages with up2date, it will
install a newer version of the package than the one that came with
Update 4. For instance, if you up2date --install postfix on an U4 box,
it will install the version that came with U5. Now they are both
postfix 2.2.10-1, but they are slightly different.

I want to be able to install the same packages that came with U4, but
I want to put that on a central server that every server can access. I
would just install the packages manually, but the nice thing about
up2date is it resolves dependencies.

Any ideas on how I can do that with RHEL4?

Thanks,

-GT
