I am new to CentOS and I am using it because Citrix XenServer is running on it.
[root@xen01 shm]# uname -a Linux xen01 188.8.131.52-0.4.1.xs184.108.40.2065.170800xen #1 SMP Mon Jul 21 05:12:35 EDT 2014 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux [root@xen01 shm]# lsb_release -a LSB Version: :core-4.0-ia32:core-4.0-noarch Distributor ID: XenServer Description: XenServer release 6.2.0-70446c (xenenterprise) Release: 6.2.0-70446c Codename: xenenterprise
I installed apcupsd package, from http://sourceforge.net/projects/apcupsd/files/rpms%20-%20Stable/3.14.10/apcupsd-3.14.10-1.el5.i386.rpm/download
But there was a new version the past year, and seems that RPM wasn't updated to 3.14.12.
I found this version however: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-EPEL-2014-4191/apcupsd-3.14.12-1.el6
I would like to know what exactly EL5 and EL6 means in term of packages. The latter fails because of dependencies, but am I able to instal EL6 packages?
Thanks a lot.
