Notes on missing packages due to missing repositories


perl-XML-Simple-2.20-5.el7.noarch : Easy API to maintain XML in Perl
Repo        : @rhel-x86_64-workstation-optional-7

So we need the “optional” repo turned on. Here is a hint on how to do that.


MP3 Support for Rhythmbox, RedHat Enterprise 6 Version

sudo rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
su -c ‘yum localinstall –nogpgcheck \ \’
sudo yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly

    • geant4
      • libXi-devel
    • cernlib
      • need link for /usr/include/freetype. There does not seem to be a rpm for this.
  • issue with using 2005 for 64-bit
    • default set-up prefers 2006
    • could base set-up on bitness
    • could call vogt 2005
    • could make default 2005 in setup
    • could make default prod in setup
      • would need to add prod to cernlib build
