Re: [Xen-users] Yum repo for XCP (ex: XCP acpi shutdown)


This did work after deleting the Citrix repo, but now it wants to upgrade more than 100 packages, which does not necessarily sound like a good idea.

Should I just go ahead as it's just security updates, or would it throw my installation into chaos? I am very unfamiliar with CentOS versioning policy. Is it something like Debian (good) or something like Gentoo (bad)? :D
If it's bad, how can I freeze the system version to a known safe point, while being able to install packages?

Okay, I figured out that dom0 is actually some sort of CentOS, and it
has Yum. The only question remaining is where I can find compatible
packages to install for XCP 1.0.

I'd be interested in stuff like acpid, smartd...
