RHEL Stanford specific package repository access

For RHEL OpenAFS repository access and installation instructions, see http://www.stanford.edu/services/afs/sysadmin/install/redhat.html.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 systems

You can obtain Stanford specific packages from Stanford's yum repository from anywhere in the world, unlike licensed RHEL packages which are only available to specific systems on the Stanford network. Create a new file named /etc/yum.repos.d/stanford.repo with the contents:

    # Name: Stanford RPMs for EL
    # URL: http://yum.stanford.edu/

    [stanford]
    name = Stanford RPMs for EL$releasever $basearch
    baseurl = http://yum.stanford.edu/mrepo/stanford-EL5-$basearch/RPMS.updates
    enabled = 1
    gpgkey = http://yum.stanford.edu/STANFORD-GPG-KEY
    gpgcheck = 1

    [stanford-noarch]
    name = Stanford RPMs for EL$releasever noarch
    baseurl = http://yum.stanford.edu/mrepo/stanford-EL5-noarch/RPMS.updates
    enabled = 1
    gpgkey = http://yum.stanford.edu/STANFORD-GPG-KEY
    gpgcheck = 1

and install the public key for the repository:

    rpm --import http://yum.stanford.edu/STANFORD-GPG-KEY

You can then install Stanford specific packages (such as wallet-client, etc) using yum as you would normally.

Point your web browser (only accessible from on-campus IP addresses) to http://yum.stanford.edu/mrepo/ to browse other available repositories. You can add openafs, shibboleth, or custom synced partial dag repositories in a similar fashion as the above stanford-EL5 yum repositories. You will need to import the GPG pubkey for Dag Wieers, I2 (shibboleth) if you use those repositories.
