    I am having a problem install the snappy compression utilities. the Install is not able to find the proper .rpm files. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue? See the output below.

    Hi Modus,

    Thanks for the following up and letting us know that issue is resolved.



    Modus Sphere

    Yes it did. I was able to install without issue after running the commands. Thanks Seth.

    Hi, Modus

    Did Seth’s suggestion work for you?



    Modus Sphere

    Thank you Seth. Yes we are trying to download the from the repository and the file is not being found. I will give your suggestions a try..

    Hi Modus,

    I just tested on my system and I was able to install snappy successfully. I think your issue is that your system tries to download snappy el5 rpm (snappy-1.0.5-1.el5.x86_64.rpm) from centos6 repo (repos/centos6/snappy). Did you try to set up repository for both centos 5 and 6?

    You can try to check yum for problems with ‘yum check’, and clean repositories with “yum clean all”.

    Hope this helps,
