WHITEBOX ENTERPRISE LINUX 4 MACHINE TO CENTOS 4
It has been found that the instructions for converting from
WBEL3->CentOS3 are not accurate for WBEL4->Cent0S4.
Here's what Cris Rhea came up with to migrate from WBEL4 to CentOS4...
rpm -e diskdumputils
At this point I (Francies) had a conflict:
/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/urlgrabber/mirror.py from install of
python-urlgrabber-2.9.8-2 conflicts with file from package
So I did: rpm - e yum-2.2.0-0.fc3
At this point, you may edit /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo to point
to a specific site if you wish (such as an internal mirror site).
If it is a WBEL machine which has been updated in the past, remove the
file wbelmirrors.repo and any other wbel files in repos.d.
yum list updates
Make sure /var has enough space... (maybe >2.5GB). If not, edit
/etc/yum.conf to point to a dir on a larger file system.
After install of all patches, reboot.
If you changed /etc/yum.conf, you can change it back now (since future
updates will be much smaller in total size).
The version numbers above were accurate as of 15 Feb 2007.
Note: On a machine which had a recently updated copy of WBEL4 I also
had to force the install of python-sqlite for some reason:
