Package repo at not showing any packages.

I understand, and yes normally OL will use EL package without error.  I’ll make a change to the .repo file on the system to use el instead of ol and try again, but I was sure I tried this as well.  I’ll follow up with the results.

BTW – Is there a web page indicating the supported platforms?

Hi Brian,

Oracle Linux is not on the Varnish project's list of supported plattforms, and we do not publish packages for it. That is why the repo file as you have configured it doesn't give you any packages. The normal RedHat/Centos packages might work fine on Oracle Linux, though we do not test that. Changing your baseurl to this should give you the published RPMs (notice changing 'ol' to 'el'):


I changed it to:<> - This does not show packages either.

Packagecloud does not implement the kind of directory listing you often see see when a web server is pointed at a directory hierarchy based package repository, so you will not get a directory listing by browsing the RPM repository URLs. But the index files that yum reads are answered and it will work when pointing yum to that URL.
