Repositories specifications

The default package management tool used by SL5 & SL6 is YUM.

In addition to your OS repositories, if you would like to install EMI/UMD, gLite or IGI products you have to proper set up the correct repositories.

For a successful installation, you will need to configure your package manager to reference a number of repositories, specific for each distribution.

You will find mirrors for all of them hosted in Padova, as primary mirror on http://repo-pd.italiangrid.it/mrepo/, and CNAF, as secondary one on http://repo-cnaf.italiangrid.it/mrepo/.

EMI Repositories

All EMI components are distributed from a single repository

Have a look to the EMI Installation & Configuration Guide - Repositories

UMD Repositories

UMD Production Repository: use the .repo files that you can find at UMD repository web
