Hi,

I'm in the process of setting up the nux dextop & epel repositories on centos 6.5 64 bit and have a couple questions.

First in the nux instructions is there a reason the i386 epel repo is used,...
dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch .rpm

...rather than the x86_64 version?
dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noar ch.rpm


Second is there a reason the epel that comes with centos (in the extras repo) should not be used?

Thanks,

-Jeff

Hi,
I think nux is still in holiday, so look here http://li.nux.ro/repos.html.
Why don`t you use the Stella iso here http://li.nux.ro/download/ISO/ ??
For Centos 7 are only 64bit repos, but sadly not yet a Stella iso.

Kind regards Smile

Hello,

1. The noarch RPM from the i386 tree is the same with the noarch package from the 64bit tree.
2. You can use the epel-release package from CentOS Extras, at the time when I wrote the instructions this was not the case. Other RH clones may not have epel-release in their repos, so the instructions are still useful.

HTH

I go away for a day and all my questions are answered. Thanks!

What I'm doing is in large part a learning experience/experiment.
So Stella would kind of be like having somebody else do my homework Smile
