Unsolved fog 1.5.10 install on rocky linux 8.7 installation error
When im running through the installation setup I get the below error.
package remi-release-8* is not installed
error: Failed dependencies:
(redhat-release >=8.8 or centos-stream-release >=8) is needed by remi-release-8.8.1.el8.remi.noarch
Then nothing happens. I thought you did not need remi release for rocky8.7
Now this is one thing someone might want to look at - making the installer aware of minor versions as well and choose the correct REMI RPM.
I thought you did not need remi release for rocky8.7
With older versions we were using REMI to get a more recent PHP version. If I remember correctly RHEL 7 used PHP 5.6 by default, maybe even 5.4. We needed PHP 7 and the old ones were dated anyway.
Looking at the installer test logs for RHEL/Rocky/Alma I just noticed this is still the case in the installer. So currently PHP 7 is being used - essentially the default provided by the distro. But PHP 7 is history as we speak and while FOG still works with PHP 7 is not wise to be used anymore - no security updates.
@lukebarone Would you be keen to take a look at this?
@Sebastian-Roth I’ll take a look - haven’t touched Red hat stuff for many many years though! Lol

@limbooface So on a fresh Rocky 8.9 (the latest version in the 8.x stream) available, the install goes without a hitch.
@limbooface Is this still an issue? If not, I’ll close this issue.
