Thread: Free updated REPO for SLES

  1. #1

    Question Free updated REPO for SLES

    Hey guys,

    Do anybody know a free repo that I can use for SLES 11 SP2?

    I'm looking for something like what you can do with CentOS and Fedora, Remi to get updated packages that are not in the main repo or update repo of CentOS, for example:

    CentOS comes with PHP 5.3, but you can get it updated to 5.4 using the epel repo from Fedora and Remi for updates for MySQL.

    Please let me know.

    Thanks,

    That is what I thought because openSUSE (let alone a version of it) was not mentioned in the post. It seems that I am wrong. Thus I now do not understand anything about this thread, but I left it to others, more intelligent then me, to continue he conversation (and my answer above that contained the same advice as your's was removed on my request).

    Hi Jürgen,

    I know there's people out there that mix Fedora repos with a Centos install.
    My 2 cents:
    1. you run SLES/SLED for a reason, stick to their repos. File a request for the needed packages to be made available for SLES/SLED.
    2. Download the desired package, use zypper to install them, without adding the openSUSE repo. That way zypper would try to resolve the deps from the SUSE repos, hence avoiding a mix of openSUSE/SUSE packages.

    I'm not going to suggest that you can't, but this makes it clear that you shouldn't:
    WARNING: Do NOT do this....Mixing Fedora repositories with CentOS oriented repositories: Look for 'name=Fedora', vs. 'name=CentOS.(whatever)'. Fedora repositories are not likely to be compatible
    I know that this is only 'on topic' by analogy, but the reasons for not doing this with Centos are the same as the reasons for not doing it with SLES. There are sacrifices in going for an enterprise version, but you are doing it for stability and testing, and then breaking all of the testing and quite possibly the stability. Certainly, you will find it difficult to get help when things do go wrong, which they will (eventually) unless you do have your own testing program.
