Repositories settings

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://igi-01.pd.infn.it/mrepo/, and CNAF, as secondary one on http://grid-it.cnaf.infn.it/mrepo/

EMI Repositories

All EMI components are distributed from a single repository ( http://emisoft.web.cern.ch/emisoft/)

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

UMD Repositories

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

For more details have a look at http://repository.egi.eu/category/umd_releases/distribution/umd_1/

gLite Repositories

In addiction to the OS repositories, for a correct gLite installation you have to set properly these repositories:

  • the middleware repositories
  • the CA repository
  • DAG
    • Remeber to disable/deactivate the EPEL repository
For more details have a look at https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/LCG/GenericInstallGuide320#Repositories

With standard installation of SL5 it's possible that you have the EPEL repository enabled. Please disable it:

# mv /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo.disabled

otherwise you'll get the following error:

Missing Dependency: libcares.so.0()(64bit) is needed by package glite-security-gss-2.0.0-3.sl5.x86_64 (glite-generic_sl5_x86_64_release)

because of the presence of newer version of c-ares (1.4.0-1.el5). The middleware needs the 1.3.0-4.sl5 !

Remeber to enabled the dag.repo :

With standard installation of SL5 it's possible that you have the DAG repository. Please check if it is enabled, if no please enabled it:

cat /etc/yum.repos.d/dag.repo

.... enabled=1 ....

Below you can find the links to the official INFNGRID repo files for all profiles. Add or update your repository settings (both “Common repositories” and “Profile-specific repositories”) in /etc/yum.repos.d/

Common repositories

Each profile needs a set of common repositories:

Common repositories *x86_64*

In order to have a working IGI service you have to download also the gLite repo files. In the table bellow you'll find the match from metapackages to profiles.

Profile-specific repositories

Furthermore each profile needs a set of repositories that contain the profile-related middleware. Look at the table below to know what specific repositories your profile needs:

Metapackages Profile-specific repositories *x86_64*
ig_ARGUS glite-argus.repo
ig_BDII_top glite-bdii_top.repo
ig_BDII_site glite-bdii_site.repo
