Configure EPEL (Extra Repository for Enterprise Linux)
This module basically just mimics the epel-release rpm. The same repos are enabled/disabled and the GPG key is imported. In the end you will end up with the EPEL repos configured.
The following Repos will be setup and enabled by default:
Other repositories that will setup but disabled (as per the epel-release setup)
If you have an http proxy required to access the internet, you can use either a class parameter in the epel class, or edit the $proxy variable in the params.pp file. By default no proxy is assumed.
I am a big fan of EPEL. I actually was one of the people who helped get it going. I am also the owner of the epel-release package, so in general this module should stay fairly up to date with the official upstream package.
I just got sick of coding Puppet modules and basically having an assumption that EPEL was setup or installed. I can now depend on this module instead.
I realize it is fairly trivial to get EPEL setup. Every now-and-then however the path to epel-release changes because something changes in the package (mass rebuild, rpm build macros updates, etc). This module will bypass the changing URL and just setup the package mirrors.
This does mean that if you are looking for RPM macros that are normally included with EPEL release, this will not have them.
- This is commonly used on Puppet Enterprise 3.x
- This was tested using Puppet 3.3.0 on Centos5/6
- This was tested using Puppet 3.1.1 on Amazon's AWS Linux
- I assume it will work on any RHEL variant
- No functionality has been introduced that should break Puppet 2.6 or 2.7, but I am no longer testing these versions of Puppet as they are end-of-lifed from Puppet Labs.
- RHEL 7 beta is out. Once EPEL 7 beta is out, I'll be testing/updating this module as well.
Install the necessary gems
Run the RSpec and puppet-lint tests
bundle exec rake ci
If you have Vagrant >=1.1.0 you can also run system tests:
RSPEC_SET=centos-64-x64 bundle exec rake spec:system
Available RSPEC_SET options are in .nodeset.yml
