Missing gitlab-ce ol8 x86_64 package in repo

I have a new installation of Oracle Linux 8 and I want to install gitlab-ce.
It appears that there is no gitlab-ce-xxx.ol8.x86_64.rpm package in the repo.

I installed the repo with:
[root@gitserver yum.repos.d]# curl https://packages.gitlab.com/install/repositories/gitlab/gitlab-ce/script.rpm.sh | bash

The repository is setup! You can now install packages.

Then I attempt to install gitlab-ce with:
[root@gitserver yum.repos.d]# yum install gitlab-ce

No match for argument: gitlab-ce
Error: Unable to find a match: gitlab-ce

I checked in gitlab/gitlab-ce - Packages · packages.gitlab.com and I don’t see a ol/8 x86_64 package so I don’t believe it exists.

I edited the yum repo
I changed the ol to el just to see what would happen

and ran
[root@gitserver yum.repos.d]# yum list available | grep gitlab
gitlab_gitlab-ce 1.4 kB/s | 862 B 00:00
gitlab_gitlab-ce-source 1.6 kB/s | 862 B 00:00
gitlab-ce.x86_64 15.0.3-ce.0.el8 gitlab_gitlab-ce

just to prove that yum is connecting properly. It is.

I don’t want to install gitlab-ce el/8 on my ol/8 system. I don’t even know if that would work.

How can we get a ol/8 package built and put into the repo?


I found instructions for installing GitLab on Oracle8 at this site:

I followed the directions and it worked.
