Dandyum2 Repo

The Dandyum2 Repo is a small repo setup to eat our own dogfood and begin to use and abuse DNF management and dep tracking. It’s simply a centos host that holds the built RPM’s to use with the RSE 007 dnfs: specifically, microdnf.

In order to use dandyum2 you need to create the repo config on your SGI. Do this as root:

cat < /usr/sgug/etc/yum.repos.d/dandyum.repo
[dandyum]
name=Simple Sgugrse  $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=http://dandyum2.irix.fun/repos/007
enabled=1
metadata_expire=1d
repo_gpgcheck=0
type=rpm
gpgcheck=0
#gpgkey=file:///usr/sgug/etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-sgugrse--
skip_if_unavailable=False
EOF

Copy and pasting that should be enough to create the repo. Once that is done you can now install some of the RSE packages with just one command. See the other entryies in the blog for packages you can now install.
