thanks  ,

i setup the beast and have yum installed but..:

bash-3.00# yum update
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
not using ftp, http[s], or file for repos, skipping - Null is not a valid
release or hasnt been released yet
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: update
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: update

i cannot seems to make this works :)
using vyum on the host works (this is how i setup yum on the guest. But
inside it it fails :(

  i tried to install whitebox linux but i failed also to find how to build
the guest so i stick with centos :)


i have some finished centos 5 images for linux vserver:

to get yum working:

edit /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo

and replace $releasever and $basearch with hardcoded values eg
$relesevar: 5
$basearch: i386

after that yum works quite fine.

Why would you do that? Why doesn't it have centos-release installed, and why can't it figure out the architecture on its own?

best regards
