Python RPM and CentOS

rbt
Not really a Python question, but I thought some on this list may be
able to answer.... so here goes:

I have several machines on which I must install CentOS. There are many
updates to CentOS and it's very time consuming to do the updates over
the network. I have a local copy of all of the updated rpms. Would it be
reasonable to do something like this to upgrade them locally and more
quickly than over the network???

updated_rpms =[list of updated rpms]

for f in updated_rpms:

try:
os.popen("/bin/rpm --nodeps -U %s" %f)

except Exception, e:
print e
Thanks,

I know that gentoo has support for local repositories, and emerge is
built on python so...this would make sense. But there is a difference
between rpms and ebuilds..

The reasonable thing would be to use "yum".

Greetings. In an effort to get python2.4 on my Centos 3.7, I installed the python bootstrap rpm. This installed 2.4 alongside 2.2 and updated yum to 2.4.0. Oddly, it didn't create a symlink 'python' for either 2.2 or 2.4. I also get a series of troubling dependency errors when I run yum update. Below is the output of the bootstrap install, which includes both a failure early on (possibly related to alternatives and/or the symlink?)...

I have found that the sunfreeware.com build of Python 2.4.3 for Solaris 10 is faster than one I can build myself, on the same system. sunfreeware.com doesn't bother showing the options they used to configure and build the software, so does anyone know what the optimal build options are for Solaris 10 (x86)? Here are some pybench/pystone results, and I include the same comparison of Python2.4.3 running on CentOS 4.3 on the same hardware...

Hi guys, I'm running CentOS 4.4 and the current version on my system is Python 2.3.4. Ideally I wanted to use an RPM to update the system python but a lot of dependencies failed and since I need to run the latest Python for a particular script, I read on this group somewhere a suggestion to run both on the same server and use: "make altinstall"

Thanks for your answers. I did solve my problem. I upgraded my glibc libraries and it seems to solve the problem. I was able to build python-2.4.5 using gcc 4.1.2 (glibc-2.5-18.el5_1.1) Alex On Thu, 2008-04-24 at 18:05 -0700, Alexandre Gillet wrote:

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
