Description

This module manages your Yum configuration, any additional plugins and also the base OS repositories.

CentOS, RHEL, Scientific and Oracle Enterprise Linux is supported using Puppet 4.6.0 or later.

Setup

Beginning with yum

In the very simplest case, you can just include the following which mimics the default configuration, plugins and repositories:

include ::yum

Usage

To not manage any default plugins or repositories:

class { '::yum':
  default_plugins => {},
  repos           => {},
}

Beware some plugins such as fastestmirror cannot be easily removed so it's better to manage them as disabled:

class { '::yum':
  default_plugins => {
    'fastestmirror' => {
      'enable' => false,
    },
  },
}

Reference

The reference documentation is generated with puppet-strings and the latest version of the documentation is hosted at https://bodgit.github.io/puppet-yum/.

Limitations

This module has been built on and tested against Puppet 4.6.0 and higher.

The module has been tested on:

  • CentOS Enterprise Linux 6/7

The module could do with more thorough acceptance testing on RedHat, Scientific and Oracle Enterprise Linux.

Development

The module has both rspec-puppet and beaker-rspec tests. Run them with:

$ bundle exec rake test
$ PUPPET_INSTALL_TYPE=agent PUPPET_INSTALL_VERSION=x.y.z bundle exec rake beaker:<nodeset>
