When you're updating you may encounter yum errors referring to libmemcached.

To resolve:

  1. Using your text editor of choice, update the openathens.repo file to exclude libmemcached from our repo.

    sudo nano /etc/yum.repos.d/openathens.repo
    name = yum repository for athens rpms
    baseurl =$releasever/la/2.2/$basearch
    enabled = 1 
    gpgcheck = 0
    failovermethod = priority
    #This line will address the libmemcached issue.
    exclude = libmemcached
  2. Save and then remove the existing libmemcached. This will also remove the OpenAthens LA component

    sudo yum erase libmemcached
  3. Now re-install the OpenAthens LA component

    sudo yum install openathensla-runtime
    sudo yum install openathensla-proxy

This will now use a maintained version of libmemcached and cause no more dependency problems.

Anything to watch out for?

Steps 2 and 3 will take the runtime out of operation for a few minutes which may be a consideration if you have a single runtime in production.
