Hi Marc. Thanks for the reply and the interest. Having a local repository is not essential but it's something that I thought would be interesting to have and fun to try. It's been fairly successful to this point, both with Fedora 9 and Fedora 10. Right now, the Fedora 10 repo is disabled and I'm using the "stock" fedora.repo. All is well, but it would be great if I could get the local repo working again along side my wiki.
The repo files are / were located on another drive on this computer. Here's some info that may be useful.
The drive that contains the repo files is as follows:
Disk /dev/sdb: 30.0 GB, 30020272128 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3649 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00087bab
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 1 3649 29310561 83 Linux
It is mounted thusly:
/dev/sdb1 on /media/disk2 type ext3 (rw)
The files are in a sub-folder of root on that disk, called /repof10
[eric@slowhand ~]$ ls /media/disk2/ -la
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 2009-01-08 06:39 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 2009-02-24 16:14 ..
drwx------ 2 root root 16384 2009-01-08 06:33 lost+found
drwxrwxrwx 3 root root 753664 2009-01-08 08:34 repof10
The /media/disk-2/repof10 folder is even Samba shared.
The repo file, etc/yum.repos.d/repof10.repo contains
name=RepoF10 $releasever - $basearch - repof10
192.168.1.105 is in fact "slowhand", the computer that hosts the wiki and the repos. Based on this info, assuming its enough, should I go with the alias? I don't think another web site name will help but I'm not that versed in this sort of stuff.
