How do I download a package from the "access.redhat.com" Customer Portal site?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Environment

  • Red Hat Customer Portal

Issue

  • Not able to find a required package on the Red Hat Customer Portal.
  • How do I download a specific package from the Customer Portal?
  • How can I find out which channel a package is associated with?
  • How do I download an rpm package manually?

Resolution



* Before checking the customer portal for packages, first check if system is registered on RHN/CDN.


The required packages can be downloaded & installed using yum if system is registered on RHN/CDN, eg:.

# yum search glibc
# yum install glibc



* If the system is not registered, or does not have the required repositories, then search for required package on the Customer Portal.

  • Go to Customer Download Page and choose Red Hat Enterprise Linux
