Spacewalk 2.3 tested to work with Ubuntu / Debian clients

As announced on the Spacewalk Mailinglist Spacewalk 2.3 is going to be released soon and is on QA/QE now.

I took this as a reason for testing Ubuntu / Debian integration with Spacewalk 2.3 from nightly repo. As it turns out, everything is working good, namely:

  • Creation of Debian Channels
  • Pushing / Syncing .deb packages to Spacewalk
  • Registering Ubuntu systems
  • Importing Ubuntu Errata ( I updated errata-import.pl script slightly to make it work )
  • OSAD
  • Package management
  • Remote Command Execution

Refer to my other articles around Spacewalk about how to set all this up.
