Core Operating System Repositories for PU_IAS 2, 2WS & 2cluster

The core operating system repositories are the same as directories holding the installation image. All of these repositories are always up-to-date - all rpm updates get integrated into installation images which is why it is used as the default repository for yum updates and there is no need for a separate update repository.

PU_IAS 2 (i386) http://puias.princeton.edu/data/PU_IAS/local/2/en/os/i386
PU_IAS 2 (x86_64) http://puias.princeton.edu/data/PU_IAS/local/2/en/os/x86_64
PU_IAS 2WS (i386) http://puias.princeton.edu/data/PU_IAS/local/2WS/en/os/i386
PU_IAS 2WS (x86_64) http://puias.princeton.edu/data/PU_IAS/local/2WS/en/os/x86_64
PU_IAS 2cluster (i386) http://puias.princeton.edu/data/PU_IAS/local/2cluster/en/os/i386
PU_IAS 2cluster (x86_64) http://puias.princeton.edu/data/PU_IAS/local/2cluster/en/os/x86_64

The above URLs can be used with 2/2WS version of yum (2.6.*) and are preconfigured in the default yum.conf

Core Operating System Updates For PU_IAS 2/2WS/2cluster

The core operating system updates - as rebuilt locally from Red Hat's free sources (in no way supported by Red Hat!) - are located in:

http://puias.princeton.edu/data/other/PU_IAS/local/updates/2/en/os

Here you can find all the current and old updates. There is no need to use this repository for regular updating as all the updates are integrated into core operating system repositories.

Addons for PU_IAS 2WS

The addons repository contains rpms not shipped with core Red Hat or rpms replacing original rpms (as rebuilt from sources shipped by the Red Hat). Some examples of rpms located in this repository include xine (multimedia), firefox and thunderbird (not included in RHEL 4) and others. PU_IAS 2WS is the result of merging the core PU_IAS 2 installation image together with PU_IAS 2WS addons. In other words there is no need to add this repository if you are using 2WS. If you add this repository to PU_IAS 2 installation you will effectively make it PU_IAS 2WS installation. The addons repository is located at:

http://puias.princeton.edu/data/other/PU_IAS/local/addons/2/

We do not recommend using this repository directly but instead either install PU_IAS 2WS or else upgrade PU_IAS-release by installing:

32 bit (i386) installation: rpm -Uhv http://puias.princeton.edu/data/other/PU_IAS/local/addons/2/i386/PU_IAS-release-2WS-3.2.i386.rpm
64 bit (x86_64/ia32e) installation: rpm -Uhv http://puias.princeton.edu/data/other/PU_IAS/local/addons/2/x86_64/PU_IAS-release-2WS-3.2.x86_64.rpm

Unsupported Software Repository for 2/2WS

The unsupported repository for 2/2WS contains various rpms that we have found useful but for which we cannot pledge any long term support. We may not be able to update them with new versions or even provide security updates in past versions - i.e. we might ask you to upgrade to the latest PU_IAS distribution version instead of updating software in this repository and use the latest's unsupported repository. You still might find rpms in this repository useful, e.g. you can find denyhosts which can help you with ssh scans. The repository is located at:

http://puias.princeton.edu/data/other/PU_IAS/local/unsupported/2/

In order to start using it please create a new file called /etc/yum.repos.d/unsupported.repo with the following contents:

[PU_IAS-Unsupported]
name=PU_IAS Unsupported $releasever

baseurl=http://puias.princeton.edu/data/other/PU_IAS/local/unsupported/$releasever/
