YUM repository on Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 19, 2009
I have taken the RHCE lab and need to retake it. One of the cool things you can do with Redhat is have your own repos for updates. Having my own repo would make studying much easier.
I am sure this can be done in Ubuntu as well but I was hoping to find someone who possibly has done this.
I have the createrepo tool and have generated the .xml files.
I am just hoping there some info somewhere on this.
Any help would be great.

Yum repository on Ubuntu possible ?

I have successfully created Yum repository over RHEL6 previously using the link
https://code.google.com/p/iredmail/w...Yum_Repository . Now I am assigned a task is to create yum repository on Ubuntu12. I understand Ubuntu uses apt-get instead of yum. So is it possible to setup yum repository on Ubuntu with similar steps or I have to set up an apt-get repository?
I didn't get any good material on search.. Kindly answer me..

Need help in installing 'Development Tools' using 'yum' in Ubuntu
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 14, 2015
I'm currently using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS mainly for neuroimaging use. I need to install a program (see: http://dti-tk.sourceforge.net/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=SourceCode.SourceCode) which is requiring me to install 'Development Tools' from CentOS. I was directed to: https://support.eapps.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/438/55/user-guide---installing-the-centos-development-tools-gcc-flex-etc#installing-the-development-tools-using-yum where I followed the instructions on the page.
However, I find that when I enter
yum groupinstall "development tools"
There are no enabled repos.
Run "yum repolist all" to see the repos you have.
You can enable repos with yum-config-manager --enable
And I get repolist: 0 when I run "yum repolist all". When I try to enable repos with the yum-config-manager command, I get 'You must be root to change the yum configuration.'
I'm not sure what I should do at this point? Any help would be much appreciated.
Dockerfile: Docker build can't download packages: centos>yum, debian/ubuntu>aptget behind intranet
- date: October 31, 2014
PROBLEM: Any build, with a Dockerfile depending on centos, ubuntu or debian fails to build.
ENVIRONMENT: I have a Mac OS X, running VMWare with a guest Ubuntu 14.04, running Docker:
~ $ sudo docker version
Client version: 1.1.2
Client API version: 1.13
Go version (client): go1.2.1
Git commit (client): d84a070
Server version: 1.1.2
Server API version: 1.13
Go version (server): go1.2.1
Git commit (server): d84a070
BEHAVIOR: Using "docker build" fails to download packages. Here's an example of such Dockerfile: https://github.com/Krijger/docker-cookbooks/blob/master/jdk8-oracle/Dockerfile, https://github.com/ottenhoff/centos-java/blob/master/Dockerfile
I know that we can run a container with --dns, but this is during the build time.
RUN yum install a b c
RUN apt-get install a b c
Users have reported that it might be problems with DNS configuration, others and the configuration has the Google's DNS servers commented out.
