That would cause more trouble than it helps, by setting it to latest, they assume everyone is running the same absolute latest version. This would cause people to install packages built for cent7 on cent6 which is itself an issue. People specifically keep certain versions of centos/debian/etc around because it is a known quanity

Let me guess, you are using the Amazon version of Centos?


They actually break things there by not having $releasever set properly to the version of centos you are actually using, but set it to just “latest”


You can edit the file in your /etc/yum.repos.d to set that variable properly

Hi All.  I am attempting to install FS and I am running into issues.  I am attempting to install FS following the instructions on this page- https://freeswitch.org/confluence/display/FREESWITCH/CentOS+7+and+RHEL+7.  When I attempt to run the second line, yum install -y freeswitch-config-vanilla freeswitch-lang-* freeswitch-sounds-*, I am receiving the following error- http://drops.tiltx.org/BUUzG0.


When I look at the freeswitch.repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d, I see the baseURL pointing to http://files.freeswitch.org/yum-1.6/$releasever/$basearch.  However, when I visit http://files.freeswitch.org/yum-1.6/latest, I get a 'Not Found' error- http://drops.tiltx.org/aqwKWN.


I have attempted to update the baseURL to http://files.freeswitch.org/yum-1.6/7/x86_64/ as well as http://files.freeswitch.org/yum-1.6/7server/x86_64/, but then receive a 'libpcre.so.1 not found' error.  


I know something is not right, but I do not know what that is.  Can someone point me in the right direction?


Thank you,
