these days I’m busy in learning Puppet.
Here’s a tip, Puppet is available in the EPEL repository but if you want to run a newer version in your CentOS 6 system (64 bits) you can download it from the official PuppetLabs repository (there’s a different repository for EL 5). I’ve tested this steps in my CentOS 6.4.
First, create a repo file with this information:
// Add the following content and save the file
name=PuppetLabs official yum repository
Now try to download the puppet package enabling temporarily the puppetlabs repo (using –enablerepo, this repository is disabled with enabled=0). You’ll have to accept PuppetLabs gpg key to download the file.
yum --enablerepo=puppetlabs install puppet
And that’s it, you have puppet 3.1 in your CentOS system.
# puppet --version
