2.4 Working with Repositories

Spacewalk repositories define where to obtain packages from ULN or Oracle Public Yum.

For ULN, a Spacewalk repository specifies the URL of a ULN channel, using the following format:

uln:///ULN_channel_label

You can get a list of available ULN channel labels by logging in to ULN (https://linux.oracle.com) and selecting the Channels tab.

The URL must contain three forward slash (/) characters, for example:

uln:///ol6_x86_64_latest  

For Oracle Public Yum, a Spacewalk repository specifies the URL of an Oracle Public Yum repository, using the following format:

http://public-yum.oracle.com/repository_path

You can obtain the URLs from the Oracle Public Yum repo files at http://public-yum.oracle.com/.

As each Spacewalk repository is specific to the i386 or x86_64 architecture, replace $basearch with the architecture, for example:

http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL6/6/base/x86_64/
