novi on RHEL5 and RHEL6

Posted by Q McCallum on 2011-05-26

Red Hat’s Enteprise distribution (RHEL) supports yum repos in v5 and v6. That means you can use novi on those systems to manage your RPM trees.

Some sharp-eyed novi users have confirmed the following:

  • for RHEL5, use novi v1.1.9
  • for RHEL6, use the novi 2.1 series

You’ll want to rebuild from the source RPM; the binary RPMs are built for Fedora and do not play so well on RHEL.

Many thanks to the folks who pointed this out.
