Install sysadmin on Amazon Linux?

Hello all,
trying to install sysadmin on my freepbx system that runs on Amazon EC2:

~  sudo yum install sysadmin
Loaded plugins: priorities, update-motd, upgrade-helper
No package sysadmin available.
Error: Nothing to do
~  cat /etc/os-release
NAME="Amazon Linux AMI"
ID_LIKE="rhel fedora"
PRETTY_NAME="Amazon Linux AMI 2015.09"

Does anyone know how to install sysadmin on this platform?


See the wiki

Thanks for the speedy response - when I try to add the schmooze commercial repo I get this error:

All good so far - the repo file is in my /etc/yum.repos.d directory

Still looking good… however:

 One of the configured repositories failed (Unknown),
 and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
 safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work "fix" this:

     1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the problem.

     2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working
        upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
        distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
        packages for the previous distribution release still work).

     3. Disable the repository, so yum won't use it by default. Yum will then
        just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it again or use
        --enablerepo for temporary usage:

            yum-config-manager --disable <repoid>

     4. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.
        Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,
        so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be be much
        slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is often a nice

            yum-config-manager --save --setopt=<repoid>.skip_if_unavailable=true

Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: schmooze-commercial/latest/x86_64

I don’t know how to proceed… Thanks

I’m not sure what releasever that AMI is. You could probably just try setting it to be 6.6, rather than $release
