This page describes how to get the Dell repositories working with ancient yum versions (< 2.4.x).
It is probably not complete yet, as we have not tested this. Please let us know if you find additional information that would help to complete this page.
- bootstrap the repository normally, then manaully fix config files.
- Ancient yum does not support separate config files. Cut and paste repository info into yum.conf
- Ancient yum does not support "mirrorlist=" directive. Change to "baseurl=" and add "&redirect=1&redir_path=" to the end of the URL.
