So I am now managing two RHEL machines that I need to install haproxy and heartbeat on. When I follow instructions to do so I get the following:

[admin@p2378442 ~]$ sudo yum -y install heartbeat haproxy
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * main-base: yum01tor.peer1.com
 * main-extras: yum01tor.peer1.com
 * main-updates: yum01tor.peer1.com
Setting up Install Process
No package heartbeat available.
No package haproxy available.
Nothing to do
[admin@p2378442 ~]$
  • and this is why I don't like "repository distro's" sure arch has repo's but you don't have to go looking for them to get stuff done. Trust me, for someone who doesn't use repository distro's ubuntu is just as frustrating to me. Commented Nov 5, 2010 at 1:16
  • As an FYI, heartbeat is discontinued and is no longer maintained (last release was in 2011). It's deprecated in favor of corosync & pacemaker.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL had them both.

You can add it like so:

sudo rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
  • IIRC, redhat 6 has an official "HA repo" which contains packages like this.
