Uploading/Obtaining an RPM Component Using Linux Commands

This section describes how to use Linux commands to upload a component to a self-hosted RPM repo and obtain a dependency from the repository.

Prerequisites

  1. An RPM component is available.
  2. A Linux host that can connect to the public network is available.
  3. You have created a self-hosted RPM repo.

Releasing a Component to a Self-Hosted RPM Repo

  1. Log in to the DevCloud homepage and access the self-hosted RPM repo. Click Operation Guide on the right of the page.

  2. In the dialog box that is displayed, click Download Configuration File.

  3. On the Linux host, run the following command to upload an RPM component:

    curl -u {{user}}:{{password}} -X PUT https://{{repoUrl}}/{{component}}/{{version}}/ -T {{localFile}}

    In this command, user, password, and repoUrl can be obtained from the RPM upload command in the configuration file downloaded in the previous step.

    • user: character string before the colon (:) between curl -u and -X
    • password: character string after the colon (:) between curl -u and -X
    • repoUrl: character string between https:// and /{{component}}

    component, version, and localFile can be obtained from the RPM component. The hello-0.17.2-54.x86_64.rpm component is used as an example.

    • component: software name, for example, hello.
    • version: software version, for example, 0.17.2.
    • localFile: RPM component, for example, hello-0.17.2-54.x86_64.rpm.

    The following figure shows the complete command.

  4. After the command is successfully executed, go to the self-hosted repo and find the uploaded RPM component.

Obtaining a Dependency from a Self-Hosted RPM Repo

The following procedure uses the RPM component released in Releasing a Component to a Self-Hosted RPM Repo as an example to describe how to obtain a dependency from a self-hosted RPM repo.

  1. Download the configuration file of the self-hosted RPM repo by referring to Releasing a Component to a Self-Hosted RPM Repo.
  2. Open the configuration file, replace all {{component}} in the file with the value of {{component}} (hello in this file) used for uploading the RPM file, delete the RPM upload command, and save the file.

  3. Save the modified configuration file to the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory on the Linux host.

  4. Run the following command to download the RPM component: Replace hello with the actual value of component.

    yum install hello
