Package requests for OL7 EPEL & Software Collections
I just migrated one of my production servers from CentOS 7 to Oracle Linux 7. Everything went smoothly, and I took some detailed notes while performing the migration.
Now the process is complete, and it's almost perfect.
I'm using the following repositories:
With the current setup, a handful of packages from the old CentOS installation are missing Here's what 'yum list extras' lists:
- certbot (from EPEL)
- fail2ban-firewalld (from EPEL)
- fail2ban-server (from EPEL)
- python-requests-toolbelt (from EPEL)
- python2-acme (from EPEL)
- python2-certbot (from EPEL)
- sclo-php73-php-pecl-imagick (from Red Hat Software Collections)
I know that I could very well add the upstream EPEL repository as well as the upstream Software Collections, and eventually configure them with a "higher" priority so packages from Oracle EPEL and Oracle Software Collections don't get squashed.
But before I do that, I thought I'd rather ask here if it's possible to integrate them into the Oracle repositories in order to have a "pure" OL system.
Thanks & cheers from the sunny South of France.
