yum-epel Cookbook

Cookbook Version CI State OpenCollective OpenCollective License

Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (or EPEL) is a Fedora Special Interest Group that creates, maintains, and manages a high quality set of additional packages for Enterprise Linux, including, but not limited to, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), CentOS , CentOS Stream and Scientific Linux (SL), Oracle Linux (OL).

The yum-epel cookbook takes over management of the default repositoryids shipped with epel-release.

Below is a table showing which repositoryids we manage that are shipped by default via the epel-release package:

Repo ID EL 7 EL 8 CentOS Stream 8

Cookbooks

  • none

Attributes

See individual repository attribute files for defaults.

Recipes

  • yum-epel::default Generates yum_repository configs for the standard EPEL repositories. By default the epel repository is enabled. For CentOS Stream, the epel-next repository is also enabled.

Usage Example

To disable the epel repository through a Role or Environment definition

default_attributes(
  :yum => {
    :epel => {
      :enabled => {
        false
       }
     }
   }
 )

Uncommonly used repositoryids are not managed by default. This is speeds up integration testing pipelines by avoiding yum-cache builds that nobody cares about. To enable the epel-testing repository with a wrapper cookbook, place the following in a recipe:

node.default['yum']['epel-testing']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['epel-testing']['managed'] = true
include_recipe 'yum-epel'

More Examples

Point the epel repositories at an internally hosted server.

node.default['yum']['epel']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['epel']['mirrorlist'] = nil
node.default['yum']['epel']['baseurl'] = 'https://internal.example.com/centos/7/os/x86_64'
node.default['yum']['epel']['sslverify'] = false

include_recipe 'yum-epel'
