Yellowdog Update Manager (YUM) grief

#1 Post by camerabob » Fri Dec 20, 2019 2:12 pm

I have an installed and running Cacti setup. Depending on where you look will tell you what version is running. YUM is reporting 1.1.36.
1.1.36a.png
Yum
1.1.36a.png (23.71 KiB) Viewed 105 times
The GUI is reporting 1.2.3.
1.1.36b.png
Cacti
1.1.36b.png (95.3 KiB) Viewed 105 times
I can't update with YUM. How do I get past this? I'm asking now before I spend the entire weekend reinstalling and moving everything to another server.

Thanks in advance

you could try compiling Manually instead of using yum

I have a script that automates it for you

The DB is hosed. I copied an install of 1.2.8 over manually and upgraded from that point. The instance still is missing items and some graphs are still not presenting data. I'm going to reinstall the entire thing from scratch losing all the history data. May be time consuming, but a fresh install after all the wonky interim builds is not such a bad thing.

bob, you've had issues before with YUM not actually doing what you think it is and I'm sure I posted the results of my analysis on that for you on here in another thread. However, the big take aware is, the package probably doesn't remove/reinstall the database if it's removed but utilises what you already had. Would be good to run a test of that theory as it's purely speculation from me :)
