    [SuMa] how do i create a bootstrap repo for centos7?

    Hi all,

    i'm trying to create software channels and bootstrap repositories for centos 7 in our SUSE Manager (3.2)
    software channels are working and are synchronized - now i wanted to create a bootstrap repository for centos7 ...and ... failed

    i found the doc: https://wiki.microfocus.com/index.ph...Bootstrap_repo

    however i cannot download the spacewalk client files from the mentioned link http://yum.spacewalkproject.org/2.6-...RHEL/7/x86_64/
    and ... maybe i'm just searching the wrong stuff - but i can't find the spacewalk client files somewhere else - most websites refer to the same yum.spacewalkproject.org site ... but ... it seems redhat has changed their directories

    can someone help me with a short (at best step-by-step) guide how i create a bootstrap repository for centos7 in suse manager?

    thanks in advance
    Andreas

    Try one of the repos from
    https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/co...roject/spacewa
    lk-2.8/

    Whilst yum.spacewalkproject.org now seems to redirect to
    www.redhat.com www.spacewalkproject.org still works (redirects to
    https://spacewalkproject.github.io/ ) - https:/
    /github.com/spacewalkproject/spacewalk/wiki/HowToInstall might be
    helpful.

    HTH.

    Hi Simon,

    thanks for your help - i found the package and got it working now

    it also looks like that i was stuck in a wrong direction...
    my main problem was (what i realized now) the missing salt packages and their dependencies - i always thougt this will be fixed by the spacewalk files (don't ask why i was thinking this way...)

    after adding the salt-packes from below repo i got my bootstrapping working
    https://repo.saltstack.com/yum/redha...x86_64/latest/

    thanks again!
    Andreas
