=== Problems ===
 +
 +
==== smeupdates-testing ====
 +
You might be directed in the forums or in bugzilla to install an update to a package from the smedev, smetest, or smeupdates-testing repository.  Once the developer is confident that the update works and solves the problem, it gets "released" to smeupdates or smecontribs.  In this case, yumcheck.sh will continue to look for updates only in original repo until you have installed the "released" version from the correct repository.
 +
 +
Assuming you have been directed to update "smeserver-php-scl" from the "smecontribs-testing" repository, you would "correct" the package once it is released by running:<syntaxhighlight lang="bash">
 +
yum --enablerepo=smecontribs reinstall smeserver-php-scl
 +
</syntaxhighlight>Note: "yum reinstall" works only for identical package versions.  If smecontribs has a newer version, you can get it using "yum --enablerepo=smecontribs update smeserver-php-scl"
 +
 +
==== Changed Dependencies ====
 +
From time to time an rpm will acquire new dependencies. Since yumcheck.sh is restricting each repository to only the packages that already came from that repository, the update will fail.
 +
 +
To work around this problem, you will need to update the affected packages manually with the source repository enabled.
 +
 +
Be sure to check the output of your yum update command carefully before allowing the update to be installed - make sure that no SME-specific rpms are included in the update!
 +
 +
Example:
 +
 +
yumcheck.sh fails to run due to a dependency problem:<syntaxhighlight lang="bash">
 +
# yumcheck.sh update
 +
...
 +
Error: Package: php71-php-mcrypt-7.1.25-1.el6.remi.x86_64 (installed)
 +
          Requires: php71-php-common(x86-64) = 7.1.25-1.el6.remi
 +
...
  
====script 1====

The objective is to update only the package or packages that are blocking safe updates using yumcheck.sh.  If updating as above (with only the indicated repository enabled) includes too many packages, you might need to add package names to the update command.  If the indicated packages include dependencies from other repositories you may need to enable those other repositories.
 +
 +
The epel repository, for example, contains many useful packages (fail2ban, nodejs, roundcube, imapsync, and many more) - but "yum --enablerepo=epel update" would break horde and php on a SME server.  In that case you would add the affected package to the update command:<syntaxhighlight lang="bash">
 +
# yum --enablerepo=epel update roundcube
 +
</syntaxhighlight>

Update contribs

Background

Important.png Note:
These scripts depend on a yum feature introduced in Centos 6 / SME 9, and will not work on earlier versions

Due to dependencies, the installation of contribs requires very often the installation of rpms coming from 3rd party (non-SME) repositories.

Enabling 3rd party repositories during a general yum update can pull in packages that are incompatible with SME server such as newer versions of PHP, mysql, samba, etc.

Updating the installed contribs needs sometimes to update the dependencies or sometimes only the dependencies get updated.

In order to avoid serious problems of compatibility, it is very important that all the rpms get updated only from the repository they are installed from, instead of only taking the most recent release existing in all the repositories that are available.

Yum doesn't do this job in one command but small scripts must be used for this purpose.

yumcheck.sh

yumcheck.sh can be used to check for and optionally install updates to packages that were originally installed from a 3rd party repository.

yumcheck.sh is an attachment to bugzilla:10158

Install at the sme server shell using (updated 2017-12-14):
(If this curl command doesn't work you can open the bug using the link above, view the attachment, create a local file with the same content, and make the local file executable)

curl -s https://bugs.contribs.org/attachment.cgi?id=6016 |sed -e 's/\r//' >/usr/local/bin/yumcheck.sh
chmod +x /usr/local/bin/yumcheck.sh


Usage:

yumcheck.sh
Check for updates for all packages installed from non-standard repos. Output only info for packages that need updates
Indicate before exit if any packages were installed using yum localinstall
Indicate before exit if the server requires signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot
yumcheck.sh update
Run in verbose mode, do the updates, prompt the user after checking each repo if updates are pending
yumcheck.sh update -q -y
Show only those items to be updated, do the updates, and answer 'yes' to each suggested update.
yumcheck.sh @/
List all rpms that have been installed using yum localinstall
yumcheck.sh @smecontribs @sogo @/
Check for updates from "smecontribs", "sogo3", and any locally installed rpms
Note that "@sogo" will be expanded to "sogo3" at runtime. Likewise, "@sme" would expand to "smecontribs"

Notes:

  • Using the default settings will list updates from the enabled repositories multiple times (once for each disabled repo with installed packages)
  • Since this command starts from the output of /sbin/e-smith/audittools/newrpms, it is possible to get errors. That is, if you configure a repository, install a package from it, then remove the configuration, this script will error.
  • Arguments starting with "@" are stripped out and handled separately. If *all* arguments start with "@", the default "check-update -q" will be passed to yum.

Problems

smeupdates-testing

You might be directed in the forums or in bugzilla to install an update to a package from the smedev, smetest, or smeupdates-testing repository. Once the developer is confident that the update works and solves the problem, it gets "released" to smeupdates or smecontribs. In this case, yumcheck.sh will continue to look for updates only in original repo until you have installed the "released" version from the correct repository.

Assuming you have been directed to update "smeserver-php-scl" from the "smecontribs-testing" repository, you would "correct" the package once it is released by running:
yum --enablerepo=smecontribs reinstall smeserver-php-scl
Note: "yum reinstall" works only for identical package versions. If smecontribs has a newer version, you can get it using "yum --enablerepo=smecontribs update smeserver-php-scl"

Changed Dependencies

From time to time an rpm will acquire new dependencies. Since yumcheck.sh is restricting each repository to only the packages that already came from that repository, the update will fail.

To work around this problem, you will need to update the affected packages manually with the source repository enabled.

Be sure to check the output of your yum update command carefully before allowing the update to be installed - make sure that no SME-specific rpms are included in the update!

Example:

yumcheck.sh fails to run due to a dependency problem:
# yumcheck.sh update
...
Error: Package: php71-php-mcrypt-7.1.25-1.el6.remi.x86_64 (installed)
           Requires: php71-php-common(x86-64) = 7.1.25-1.el6.remi
...
Find the repository that the installed package came from:

# yum info php71-php-mcrypt

The objective is to update only the package or packages that are blocking safe updates using yumcheck.sh. If updating as above (with only the indicated repository enabled) includes too many packages, you might need to add package names to the update command. If the indicated packages include dependencies from other repositories you may need to enable those other repositories.

The epel repository, for example, contains many useful packages (fail2ban, nodejs, roundcube, imapsync, and many more) - but "yum --enablerepo=epel update" would break horde and php on a SME server. In that case you would add the affected package to the update command:
# yum --enablerepo=epel update roundcube
