Thread: YOU: How to add aditional packages?

    Default YOU: How to add aditional packages?

    First of all, thanks for reading this thread.

    So, my problem is as follow: Found many tutorials for YOU servers, teaching how to make it function like a mirror with files from sources-sites. BUT! I have to add other packages in my server, then the terminals [erh... quite A LOT of terminals] can download from it.

    These packages are not listed at sourcelist, they will be completely optional ones.

    So... how can I do it?



    Thanks for the attention [and excuse me for the poor english].

    i'm not at all sure i understand what you want to do..

    do you mean you want to set up a server to hold packages which other
    computer users can access with the YaST Online Update (YOU) Server on
    their openSUSE machine?

    to do that i think you just need to run Apache and populate it with
    the packages you wish to distribute...and make the address of
    directories available to those you wish to distro to..

    Hmmm... let me try to ask the question again. [The language barrier is kinda mean]

    Reading some tutorials, I learned how to create mirrors like this:

    [openSuse]----->[Local Mirror Server]----->[Local Terminals]

    This solves half my problem. I download the updates to a local server, my terminals download from it. Ok. Now, the another half is that I need to add packages/repositories/another programs to this server, so the terminals can download them too from it.

    i.e., adding a Winamp.rpm to this Local Server, so the Terminals can download it through YaST/zypper.

    I HAVE to do it through this 'update' way, because of its automatic nature. This project I am working with is meant for more then ten thousand terminals [yup, I said it was a lot], so using another ways are inviable [like, y'know, the manual copy, paste and install way].

    I tried to use feu4s, but my supervisor didn't like the idea of using something out of the openSuse distribution.


    Thanks again for the attention/patience.

    Yeah, something like that! But as I said above, it's not something that users access then download from it. It HAVE to be something more... automatic, without user interference.

    i am NOT a guru on this, but i _think_ it is as simple as using rsync
    to replicate *and* populate the distant/upstream server's directory
    layout and packages on your local server..

    and then give those 10k terminals access to the local copies..

    the latter step is as easy as adding the local server as an enabled
    repository on the terminal's YaST, and run the automatic YaST Online
    Updaters daily via cron..

    you might find it easier in another language, see the list of
    "Language Specific Forums" here http://forums.opensuse.org/

    additionally, you might find an openSUSE pro in a Linux User Group
    near you, see http://www.linux.org/groups/

    YOU will only install official patches and not package updates from various unsupported or 3rd party repositories.


    After all my work to make this system of mine works, this single line kick my a**. {:
    *Laughs*

    I was wondering about why openoffice and adobe reader rpms didn't show at YaST Online Updater, even after triple-checking all rsync/nfs I did.

    Now some people pointed a new way for me: ZMD [now obsolete] and Libzypp, and that those can MAYBE make this work.

    So, anyone have any suggestions? Anything will help, srsly.


    Thanks for the attention.
