There are a couple tools I would like to install on my Arista switch – one in particular is iftop.

I gather the Linux platform running on the switch is RPM-based, and read somewhere that it is “similar” to fedora.  But I have downloaded iftop RPMs for several versions of Fedora and tried to install them, but end up in dependency hell.  I don’t want to break things.

Is there a proper RPM repository for the Arista switches that can be accessed using yum, to install extra packages?

[admin@eos ~]$ sudo bash -c ’cat >/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo
[fedora]
name=Fedora 14 – i386
failovermethod=priority
baseurl=http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/14/Everything/i386/os/
exclude=kernel,fedora-logos
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
^D

should do the trick.

Is this still the right repo to use in the latest version of EOS?

Hi Cat,

Good question – for EOS 4.16 and older you should use:

[fedora]
name=Fedora 14 – i386
failovermethod=priority
baseurl=http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/14/Everything/i386/os/
exclude=kernel,fedora-logos
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

For EOS 4.17 and later, this would be the correct repository:

[fedora]
name=Fedora 18 – i386
failovermethod=priority
baseurl=http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/18/Everything/i386/os/
exclude=kernel,fedora-logos
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

Rgds,
Colin

Just thought I’d share something I learned while making sure 4.20 still uses the same fedora core, TAC advises you can check the core version with this command:

show version detail | grep fc
