The instructions on creating your own Yum Repository seem incorrect. 1) The following command downloads the rpms into a new directory named " --exclude=debug" 2) Various directory locations seem inconsistent. For instance, it says to copy your base rpms to /var/www/centos/base but the repository configuration file says: Which points to a non-existent directory. Anyone else notice this? Of course I'm replacing the IP with my IP and source repository with a closer mirror.
