Topic: Composer package update. CentOS 8

Hello

Unable to install updates. Here is already a closed thread about composer, but I did not understood what is the solution. My case's output is

[root@ispcd ~]# dnf update

Error:

Re: Composer package update. CentOS 8

You need  to  enable  "remi" repository

Desktop: Fedora 33 + rpmfusion + remi-test + remi-dev
Laptop:  Fedora 34 + rpmfusion + remi (SCL only)
Hosting Server: CentOS 8 Stream with EPEL, rpmfusion, remi

It helps. Thanks.

Re: Composer package update. CentOS 8

Previous answer (from phone) was short, explanation

Usually "noarch" packages are in EPEL, and "remi" provides more recent versions
So, as it replaces official packages it is not enabled by default

But, for 8, things are a bit different as EPEL-8 is empty for now (no PHP packages there)
or perhaps is dead....

Hi Remi!

Sorry to necro an older post, but I think I'm having a similar issue and I'm curious about your response.

I believe I have done this by installing remi-release.noarch rpm. However, I'm having a similar issue. I'm using CentOS 8 (not Stream) and php:remi-8.0. We plan on moving to Rocky Linux when that is stable. You mentioned:

Does this mean that due to CentOS 8 being killed some of the dependencies are now missing that makes composer work?

Here is my environment and issue:

I'm also curious if you have any thoughts on remirepo's compatibility with Rocky Linux in the future. I think it should work out of the box since it's basically picking up where CentOS 8 is leaving off.

Merci!

This is not enough, as "remi" repository (which provide noarch package) replace some packages from official repository, it is not enabled by default (on remi-safe is)


> Does this mean that due to CentOS 8 being killed some of the dependencies are now missing that makes composer work?

CentOS 8 is not killed
EPEL-8 is the problem

I'm terribly disappointed by FUD around CentOS 8 stream

BTW, my main target is RHEL.
Clones work because they are clones.

Support for other distribution is a best effort (such as Amzn)

Desktop: Fedora 33 + rpmfusion + remi-test + remi-dev
Laptop:  Fedora 34 + rpmfusion + remi (SCL only)
Hosting Server: CentOS 8 Stream with EPEL, rpmfusion, remi

Re: Composer package update. CentOS 8

Got it! I was able to enable it with

dnf config-manager --set-enabled remi

And then enable the composer:2 module.

Thank You!
