Manages Yum Repository files in /etc/yum.repos.d on CentOS / RHEL 5.x.
Yum repositories included in this recipe: EPEL, ELFF, Dell OMSA, Dell Community, Dell Firmware, VMware Tools, and more...
This cookbook requires RHEL or CentOS 5.x, and newer. It has not been tested on other platforms. It probably will not work with RHEL 4 or CentOS 4, especially if you have not taken action to manually install yum on that platform.
RHEL 6 support is very new, and has been tested on only a few systems. Let me know if you find a bug, related to one of the recipes.
The yumrepo::dell recipe requires Dell manufactured hardware. This recipe should automatically disable itself if non-Dell hardware is detected by Ohai
The yumrepo::vmware-tools recipe requires a VMWare Virtual Machine. This recipe should automatically disable itself if non-VMWare hardware is detected by Ohai.
