What do I do with an iso-file/a CD-image?

Burn it on CD/DVD

On Windows 7 and newer and most desktop environments for Linux/Unix you should get "Burn on CD/DVD" or a similar menu item when right-clicking on the ISO-file, with which you can burn the image onto a blank disk.

On Mac OSX you will need the TODO

Unter Mac OSX benötigen Sie das "Festplatten-Dienstprogramm". Dort können Sie die ISO-Datei in die linke Spalte ziehen, auswählen und auf "brennen" klicken.

Most burning software will also provide you with the option of burning an image.

Create a bootable USB-stick

Instead of using a CD or DVD you can also use the image to create a bootable USB-stick. You can use UNetbootin or LinuxLive for example to do so. (Wikipedia has a List of other tools)


Config examples for using the server as source for packages

CentOS / Scientific Linux

baseurl can be defined as single as well as multiple URLs. For using multiple ones it's a good idea to use the fastestmirror-Plugin

/etc/yum.repos.d/base.repo

	[base]
	name=CentOS-$releasever - Base
	#mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=os&infra=$infra
	baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
		http://linux.rz.rub.de/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
	gpgcheck=1
	gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-7

/etc/yum.repos.d/SL.repo

	[sl]
	name=Scientific Linux $slreleasever - $basearch
	baseurl=http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/$slreleasever/$basearch/os/
			http://ftp1.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/$slreleasever/$basearch/os/
			http://ftp2.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/$slreleasever/$basearch/os/
			http://linux.rz.rub.de/scientific/$slreleasever/$basearch/os/
	#mirrorlist=http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/mirrorlist/sl-base-7.txt
	enabled=1
	gpgcheck=1
	gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-sl file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-sl7

Gentoo

/etc/make.conf

	GENTOO_MIRRORS="http://linux.rz.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/gentoo-mirror"
    	SYNC="rsync://linux.rz.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/gentoo-portage"

/etc/wget/wgetrc

	http_proxy = http://www-cache.rz.ruhr-uni-bochum.de:80/
	ftp_proxy  = http://www-cache.rz.ruhr-uni-bochum.de:80/
        no_proxy   = ruhr-uni-bochum.de
        use_proxy  = on

Linux Mint

To make the server selectable in software-manager:

/usr/share/python-apt/templates/LinuxMint.mirrors

	LOC:DE
	http://ftp-stud.hs-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/packages.linuxmint.com/
	http://ftp.fau.de/mint/packages/
	http://linux-mint.froonix.org/
	http://linuxmint-apt.killerhorse.eu/packages/
	http://linux.rz.rub.de/linuxmint/packages/

OpenSuSe

Can be copied right into a console (adjust version):

	ver=13.1
	zypper addrepo -ft yast2 http://linux.rz.rub.de/opensuse/distribution/$ver/repo/non-oss/ rub-$ver-Non-Oss
	zypper addrepo -ft yast2 http://linux.rz.rub.de/opensuse/distribution/$ver/repo/oss/ rub-$ver-Oss
	zypper addrepo -fd http://linux.rz.rub.de/opensuse/source/distribution/$ver/repo/oss/ rub-$ver-Source
	zypper addrepo -ft rpm-md http://linux.rz.rub.de/opensuse/update/$ver/ rub-$ver-Update
	zypper addrepo -ft rpm-md http://linux.rz.rub.de/opensuse/update/$ver-non-oss/ rub-$ver-Update-Non-Oss
	echo 'priority=90' |tee -a /etc/zypp/repos.d/rub-$ver-*

Slackware

/etc/slackpkg/mirrors

	# You only need to select one mirror and uncomment them. Please,
	# ONLY ONE mirror can be uncommented each time.
	# Slackware64-14.1
