What problem are you trying to solve? Why not use one of those, or ~/foo?

comment Build gdal with mrsid plugin on fedora 21 server
I'm not quite sure I understand the premise of your question. Fedora 21 Server is Fedora 21, and has the same packages as Fedora 21 Workstation, Fedora 21 Cloud, or any of the other derivatives. The only difference, at this point, is in the default configurations and what's there out-of-box.

comment Debian init runlevels
And now that's the case in Debian as well. Time to switch "default target" for "runlevel" in your mind.

comment How to modify files in yum.repos.d to install MySQL and others?
I think what's happening is that mirrormanager isn't returning valid data for F14 anymore, and that's why the end up empty. Skip the mirrorlist (or newer metalink) and configure the baseurl.

comment Host linux distro without GUI?
@ArneJensen Yes, if you configure it this way. How to do that specifically depends on the distro. In Fedora, you would run sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target (as opposed to graphical.target).

comment How to modify files in yum.repos.d to install MySQL and others?
Something like that? http://archive.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/‌​Fedora/$basearch/os/, I think should work (yum fills in those variables). Not that I really condone this — there are so many unfixed security issues that I think it's somewhat irresponsible. But, hey, if it's the class, do what works....

@dabad Doesn't help right now, but Fedora (which I work on) is starting a push for more university involvement, and we'd love to help your instructor update the curriculum to a more recent Fedora version.

@Woot4Moo You mean, like, installing other packages in %pre? Not safely, no.

comment Build gdal with mrsid DSDK on fedora 21
This isn't sufficient debug info. The error is either further up or is suppressed/hidden.

comment How to prevent tzdata updates on CentOS resetting /etc/localtime
@guido But, try $ rpm -q --triggeredby tzdata, and you'll see the glibc-common package has a script triggered by tzdata update. Specifically, it runs /usr/sbin/tzdata-update. (This is on CentOS 6 and earlier; things are different with systemd.)
