Description pada 2011-04-04 17:42:33 UTC
EPEL 6 still ships varnish 2.1.4, even though there is a build of the latest varnish stable release 2.1.5 available on koji:


Please update varnish in EPEL 6 to the latest stable release.
I can support you with testing under RHEL6 if you need help.

Can this be built and pushed to EPEL 5 too? I've built it locally from the EL6 SRPM (no changes made) and its working fine.

It is always a goal for us to have the same SRPM for all Red Hat derivates. The SRPM should build on the latest Fedora versions and EPEL5 and 6. With a minor change, it also builds on EPEL4.

The reason that 2.1.x is not in EPEL5 is that because of a syntax change in VCL, there is no clean upgrade path from 2.0.x.

Easiest way out is probably to use Varnish Software's own yumrepo. It is compatible with EPEL5. See http://www.varnish-cache.org/installation/redhat
