Editing the Dell OMSA yum repo file on FC10, to allow updates from Dell Linux repos?

I am trying get the Dell yum repos working under Fedora Core 10, but am running into issues getting the OS recognized by the yum repo.  I have installed the Dell OMSA repository rpm, and that installs just fine.

I keep reading all these posts that say to modify the yum.conf file so that instead of saying "fc" it says "el5" but that doesn't seem to be applicable under FC10.  In FC10, all yum repos reside under /etc/yum.repos.d but in the dell-omsa-repository.repo repository definition file it doesn't specifically identify the OS.  Instead it refers to the system's variable for the OS:  

mirrorlist=http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/latest/mirrors.cgi?osname=el5&basearch=$basearch&dellsysidpluginver=$dellsysidpluginver

Is there a way to modify this line so that yum will think that it is trying to pull yum updates onto a RHEL5_x64 server, which from what I am reading should install all the rpms that are compatible with FC10_x64, which is what this server's OS actually is?

Re: Editing the Dell OMSA yum repo file on FC10, to allow updates from Dell Linux repos?

I was able to get OMSA to install after installing the 32bit dependencies and changing the /etc/redhat-release (fedora-release) file on Fedora 10 on Dell PowerEdge 2950:

[root@l-redhat-4 /]# uname -a; cat /etc/redhat-release
Linux l-redhat-4 2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Nov 18 11:58:53 EST 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3 (Tikanga)
[root@l-redhat-4 /]#

Then I installed the 32bit versions of the dependencies:

glibc.i386  libstdc++.i386 ncurses.i386 libxml2.i386 pam.i386 ncurses-libs-5.6-20.20080927.fc10.i386 compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-64.i386

 

I haven't been able to test yet though, but it did successfully install.

[root@l-redhat-4 OM55]# srvadmin-services.sh status
dell_rbu (module) is running
ipmi driver is running
dsm_sa_datamgr32d (pid 23722 23594) is running
dsm_sa_eventmgr32d (pid 23632) is running
