I have created a 6.2 local repository in our lan and it works fine for

However, when trying to use the yum groups, I get this:

# yum grouplist
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security
Setting up Group Process
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Error: No group data available for configured repositories

I have tried downloading one comps.xml file (I have tried both with
and rebuilding the repo with createrepo -g /path/to/xml /path/to/rpms, but
after cleaning the yum cache and remaking the cache on the client I still
have the same error.

I am obviously doing something wrong, but I do not see what. Any hints
greatly appreciated

The repos are created with mrepo, in case this is important.

Any hints greatly appreciated.
