Configures various YUM components on Red Hat-like systems. Includes LWRP for managing repositories and their GPG keys.
Based on the work done by Eric Wolfe and Charles Duffy on the yumrepo cookbook.
RedHat Enterprise Linux 5, and 6 distributions within this platform family.
- An array containing a list of packages to exclude from updates or installs. Wildcards and shell globs are supported.

- Defaults to the most current release of EPEL, based on the major version of your platform release.
- Set the epel release version based on
- Set the IUS release to install.

The default recipe does nothing.
Manages the configuration of the
/etc/yum.conf via attributes. See
the aforementioned Array attributes
Installs the EPEL repository via RPM. Uses the
attribute to select the right version of the repository package to
install. Also uses the node's platform version (as an integer) for the
major release of EL.
On Amazon Linux, the built-in EPEL repository is activated using
yum-config-manager --quiet --enable epel. This ignores the
node['yum']['epel_release'] attribute in favor of the version
configured in the Amazon Linux AMI.
Installs the IUS Community repositories
via RPM. Uses the
node['yum']['ius_release'] attribute to select the
right versino of the package to install.
The IUS repository requires EPEL, and includes
yum::epel as a
This LWRP handles importing GPG keys for YUM repositories. Keys can be
imported by the
url parameter or placed in
/etc/pki/rpm-gpg/ by a
recipe and then installed with the LWRP without passing the URL.

- :remove: removes the GPG key from
- key: name attribute. The name of the GPG key to install.
- url: if the key needs to be downloaded, the URL providing the download.

This LWRP provides an easy way to manage additional YUM repositories.
GPG keys can be managed with the
key LWRP. The LWRP automatically
updates the package management cache upon the first run, when a new
repo is added.
