Configuring servers with yum at Point 8

Yum is the standard tool for managing packages on Linux desktop machines. At Point 8 we normally use Quattor, but there are cases where we want to intstall specific packages, without going through the template modifications required by this. Also as of today (01-05-07) not all machines are fully quattorized (the RPMs do not always come from SPMA).

For these cases we provide a complete mirror of all available RPMs of SLC4, the Online RPMs and the CCPC RPMs on

This is a mirror of the central archives on AFS, synchronised every night by user online on gw02. The repositories physically live on /sw/lhcb-rpm.

The configuration of yum can be done by installing the LHCb Point 8 specific yum-config rpm

Notable all CCPCs are currently managed with yum!
