Re: [Spacewalk-list] Help setting up Ubuntu channel(s)



Here's what I just used to recreate all my channels and repos for Spacewalk 2.7. For security patches and general updates, I'm using channels combining repos for both main and universe. We don't tend to use multiverse packages, so we haven't created the channels & repos for that because it's not worth it to us allocating the disk space. So you might want to tweak this, either to have separate main and universe channels or to add multiverse. We also deploy from CD or VM template cloning, so I didn't bother adding a universe repo for the base channel. I've also got a custom channel for locally patched spacewalk client builds.

I'm curious to hear whether other Ubuntu Spacewalk users do things differently and how/why.

Check that your channels have the right settings for checksum type (SHA256) and Architecture (AMD64 Debian). If they don't then you will need to delete and recreate them.
