Doubt with Vault Repo

Post by yugher » 2017/05/18 23:44:36

Hi, I am using CentOS 5.
I would like to enable "vault" repo. My doubt is: should I simply enable Vault by editing

Code: Select all

/etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Vault.repo
(by setting "enabled=1"), or should I CHANGE baseurl in

Code: Select all

/etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo?
Thank you!

Either one works. Just so long as you know that there will be no more updates to el5. It will become increasingly insecure as time goes by so do not rely on it and start to plan how to get somewhere else. Soon.

Actually your current vault probably stops at 5.10 so you do want to change CentOS-Base to point to the 5.11 vault content.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!
