Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 838403
Fedora 17 repository does not exist - can't install rhc!
Last modified: 2015-07-19 19:50:30 EDT
Description of problem:
1. Install Fedora 17
2. Download https://openshift.redhat.com/app/repo/openshift.repo as described on http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/OpenShift/2.0/html/Getting_Started_Guide/sect-Getting_Started_Guide-Installing_on_Fedora-Installing_the_Client_Tools.html
3. Run "sudo yum check-update" from the command line;
$ sudo yum check-update
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
https://openshift.redhat.com/app/repo/rpms/17/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found : https://openshift.redhat.com/app/repo/rpms/17/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from openshift: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
4. Try browsing to https://openshift.redhat.com/app/repo/rpms/17/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml. There's no file there!
The user doc is not actually wrong ($releasever and $basearch are ok) but the repo is not publicly available for F17 yet.
Adam is going to address the repo/rpm availability issue.
In my opinion, the documentation is needs to be updated so that Fedora users use the packages in Fedora and not our repo.
We need to eventually do this anyway, and it would be good to start now.
The rubygem-rhc in Fedora is usually only two days or so outdated, except when we add dependancies not in Fedora.
Side note about Fedora 17. The rhc rpm's that we made and put up on our openshift site are *not* compatable with Fedora 17.
We have been lucky up until Fedora 16. It's really only luck that we've been able to use our RHEL6 rpm's with Fedora. Most packages are not that compatible.
It's easy for us to update the instructions to use the Fedora repo and not https://openshift.redhat.com/app/repo/rpms/
We just need to know when and what.
afaik there is also a preference to use gem installs, and again, all we need is the info to add to the doc. We can patch and push any time.
I really like the wording for Fedora and RHEL here
I don't know about the other sections, but I think if we put the Fedora and Red Hat section into the documentation, that would be great.
Re Comment 4, is it accurate?
"OpenShift is available as as an RPM in the YUM package manager on Fedora 16 and 17"
I thought the original bug was about F17 rpm files not being available.
Not sure what you mean about this bit:
"I don't know about the other sections, but I think if we put the Fedora and Red Hat section into the documentation, that would be great."
If by "the documentation" you mean what's on docs.redhat.com then it's already there, and has been for months.
If you want to change what's in these sections, pls raise a BZ.
New bug opened.
Closing. Documentation needs to be updated wich is bug 840488
