I followed this link http://www.ossec.net/?page_id=19 and enable both epel and atomic repo to install ossec. My problem is I just want a local installation of ossec so I ran this yum install osssec-hids. Is this correct? Secondly now each time I do yum update I get a whole list of updates from atomic too which I am not dare to update but I just want it to update ossec only is that possible?


Edit the yum repo, and add a include=ossec-hids* to it, so it only includes those packages.

  • @Where is the yum repo file ? I am not too sure is it in /etc/ – biz14 May 18 '13 at 5:02
  • Ok I know where it is but I did something like this enabled = 1 priority =99 protect = 0 gpgkey = file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY.art.txt gpgcheck = 1 include = ossec-hids* then I try to this got error yum install ossec-hids ossec-hids-server Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities, refresh-packagekit Error: Error accessing file for config file:///etc/yum.repos.d/ossec-hids* – biz14 May 18 '13 at 5:07
