Re: [PLUG] RHEL installation - Installation Source prompt - Error setting up a base repository

JP --

We have a customer running YottaDB on RHEL, so it needs to be Supported. For us, Supported means we have the platform in-house and run the regression test suite on it when we release the software. So, while we can get by with CentOS for other in-house use, in order to be Supported, we have to run the real software. It's unfortunate, because we have to pay money, and RH support seems to be in a race to the bottom with the Redmond Empire.

P.S. We've switched to Arch as the primary development platform, and that's also what I run on my laptop. It takes some getting used to, but there's no going back for me (though on Raspberry Pi's, we're running Raspbian, so we're also a Debian shop).

I just signed up and paid for a Red Hat subscription, and downloaded the RHEL 7.4 ISO image, made a bootable USB, booted it and am trying to install it. Under Installation Source, I get "Error setting up a base repository". I have been searching for answers, but cannot find any article that tells me what base repository I should set up. Every URL I try gives me the error.

I have e-mailed Red Hat support; let's see if anyone answers (their on-line help is truly awful). Meanwhile if anyone can point me to the answer, I'd appreciate it. Thank you very much in advance.

Why not just use CentOS?  Or better yet, Debian?
