I'm trying to install graphviz version 2.38 on my RHEL workstation. I saved graphviz-rhel.repo in /etc/yum.repos.d as instructed, but when I run sudo yum list available 'graphviz*', the only version it finds is 2.30, which has a bug that has been fixed in later versions so I need to have 2.38. I think the links in graphviz-rhel.repo might be broken which is why yum doesn't find the latest stable packages, but I'm not 100% sure. Thank you.

  • What is your RHEL workstation version? The version depends ond this. The repo files uses $relesver in the path. Some releasever only get older versions... – Tobias Nov 30 '16 at 21:35
  • Other idea: Did you du a yum update before searching? – Tobias Nov 30 '16 at 21:36
  • @Tobias yum update upgrades packages, it's not the same as apt-get update. – jordanm Nov 30 '16 at 23:18
  • You are right. I just wanted to ensure, that the repositories are refreshed. Better would be yum makecache. – Tobias Dec 1 '16 at 6:06
  • Did you enable the repo? – Tobias Dec 1 '16 at 6:07

Use yum repolist all to see all repos. Use then yum-config-manager --enable repository-id to enable your graphviz repo.

If your repo is not listened try yum-config-manager --add-repo http://www.graphviz.org/graphviz-rhel.repo to add your repo.

  • I tried both of these. When I used yum repolist all I got a few disabled graphviz repos. Then I tried enabling them all but on the status it said 0 after the word "enabled" which I'm guessing means that it's enabled but has no packages? I confirmed this to be true by running yum list available 'graphviz*' again and the only version listed after enabling them were still 2.30. – Gustavo Rodriguez Dec 1 '16 at 16:51
  • I think the problem might be that this repo doesn't exist for my particular OS and architecture. When I type yum repolist all I get this which is caused by the graphviz-rhel.repo I added to /etc/yum.repo.d: http://www.graphviz.org/pub/graphviz/development/redhat/el7Workstation/x86_64/debug/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found – Gustavo Rodriguez Dec 2 '16 at 17:08
  • Ah. You have this version. Yes, theres is no repo for it. Check this: graphviz.org/pub/graphviz/development/redhat – Tobias Dec 2 '16 at 18:15
  • You can try the source rpm from graphviz.org. There is one for Red Hat. Howto: itechlounge.net/2012/12/… PS: I have no expereiance with this - just a tip. – Tobias Dec 2 '16 at 18:31
