Migration from CentOS 8


I’m migrating a loadbalancer cluster from CentOS 8 (latest) to alma.
The script worked like a charm, but I got 2 warning messages:

warning: /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Linux-PowerTools.repo saved as /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Linux-PowerTools.repo.rpmsave
warning: /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Linux-HighAvailability.repo saved as /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Linux-HighAvailability.repo.rpmsave

What has happend to the repos, or what are the repos called under alma ?

ANy suggestions are welcome

Kind regards


You had modified those config files. For example, to enable those two repos. The migration does uninstall the (CentOS) package that provides those files and that does store your custom settings in the *.rpmsave -files. (Similarly, a package update that would change something in the *.repo -files usually creates *.repo.rpmnew instead, so you keep your config and can merge yourself.)

The first one is powertools. Can’t remember the repoid of the other.
(dnf repolist all does show repoid’s of disabled repos too.)
