Preparing yum

First add our repo to the yum directory:

Code Block
themeEclipse
vi /etc/yum.repos.d/openathens.repo

For help with the vi text editor: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=vi+cheetsheet

Add the following

Code Block
themeEclipse
[openathens-sp]
name = yum repository for athens rpms
baseurl = https://username:password@repo.openathens.net/yum/pkgs/rhel$releasever/sp/2.2/$basearch
enabled = 1
gpgcheck = 0
failovermethod = priority

Where username and password are the credentials for your OpenAthens administrator account. Our service desk will be able to help you if you are unsure.

In a small number of cases, the rhel$releasever variable in the base URL may not be picked up - e.g. if you have heavily modified your server. In such cases you will need to manually set it - e.g. rhel6
