1.10.3 Configuring a Spacewalk Server to Act as a Ksplice Mirror

To configure a Spacewalk server to act as a Ksplice mirror, you configure repositories and associated software channels for the Oracle Linux releases and architectures of the clients on which you want to run Ksplice Offline Client. Each Ksplice channel should be a child of the appropriate base software channel.

For more information, see Chapter 2, "Working with Repositories" and "Working With Software Channels" in the Spacewalk 2.6 for Oracle Linux Client Life Cycle Management Guide for the Oracle Linux release that you are running.

The following table shows the channels that are available for Ksplice on Oracle Linux.
