    Oracle Public YUM errata for a particular release version

    Catch 22
      Hello,

      The "el5_latest" repository seems to contain several updated packages for various Oracle Linux releases, but it is apparently not possible to use Oracle Public Yum to restrict updates to a specific release version. Is this correct? Is this available with a ULN subscription, or if there is another way how to apply errata for a specific Oracle Linux release version?

      For instance:

      # yum install rpm*.el5_7.2
      Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
      This system is not registered with ULN.
      ULN support will be disabled.
      Setting up Install Process
      Package matching rpm-libs-4.4.2.3-22.0.1.el5_7.2.x86_64 already installed. Checking for update.
      Package matching rpm-python-4.4.2.3-22.0.1.el5_7.2.x86_64 already installed. Checking for update.
      Package matching rpm-4.4.2.3-22.0.1.el5_7.2.x86_64 already installed. Checking for update.
      Resolving Dependencies
      --> Running transaction check
      ---> Package rpm.x86_64 0:4.4.2.3-22.0.1.el5_7.2 set to be updated
      ... etc.
      --> Processing Dependency: libsepol-devel >= 1.15.2-1 for package: libselinux-devel
      ---> Package nss-devel.x86_64 0:3.13.1-5.0.1.el5_8 set to be updated
      ... etc.


      Thanks!

          Correct. If you have a ULN subscription, you can limit your channels to the specific update release base and patch channels. The public-yum.oracle.com site now just contains the base channels, i.e. the same package set as each ISO, along with the latest channel, which will update an OL5 machine to the latest packages.
