Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 820088
yum-builddep kernel missing asciidoc
Last modified: 2013-01-09 19:56:24 EST
Description of problem:
Default RHEL6.2 server install seems to be missing asciidoc.
asciidoc is needed to fulfill yum build-dependencies for the kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
lsb_release -d -r -c
Description: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.2 (Santiago)
100% on my freshly installed RHEL6.2 server.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run: "yum-builddep kernel"
2. Or run: yum install asciidoc
Error: No Package found for asciidoc
(and none of the other builddep RPMs are installed)
The builddep RPMs would be installed.
What RPM repository do I need to enable to get asciidoc installed?
Used RPMforge repository to find RPM for asciidoc.
Install DAG's GPG key::
rpm --import http://apt.sw.be/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt
Install 64-bit version::
rpm -Uvh \
Optionally limit packages to asciidoc, by editing
/etc/yum.repos.d/rpmforge.repo and adding::
# Edit file: /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmforge.repo
The asciidoc package is in the "rpmforge-extras" repository, which is
not enabled by default. Its possible to enable on the command line via::
yum install --enablerepo=rpmforge-extras asciidoc
It looks like asciidoc is also avail in the optional repo.
yum --enablerepo=rhel-6-server-optional-beta-rpms install asciidoc
To enable the optional repo permanently, you can edited /etc/yum.repos.d/redhat.repo and under section [rhel-6-server-optional-beta-rpms] changed enabled = 1.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
AFAIK, this is working as intended. The optional repo is for things that may not have the same support, but are needed for build deps, etc.
Yes, this is working as intended, as the package is avail in "rhel-6-server-optional-beta-rpms".
