ayo repository broken. Another mirror for freshrpms?


In fc3, using synaptic with the freshrpms group of repositories, which was working, today refresh got error messages for several of the repositories. For example:
http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linu...glist.updates: Size mismatch

I have been unable to find a working mirror. What is going wrong? Do I need to switch to a different group of repositories?

Several ayo mirrors tried. All have problems

Thanks. I tried several of the mirrors at that site. Some seem to have working repositories, but have a different organization than the ayo repositories.

All the ayo mirrors seem to be having problems. Some don't respond. Some return problems like the following:

ftp://ftp.us3.freshrpms.net/pub/fres...glist.updates: Unable to fetch file, server said 'Failed to open file. '
ftp://ftp.tr.freshrpms.net/pub/mirro...glist.updates: Unable to fetch file, server said '/pub/mirrors/freshrpms/ayo/fedora/linux/3/i386/base/base/pkglist.updates.bz2: No such file or directory ' [IP: 193.140.100.100 21]

I''ll try backing up my system and using one of the non-ayo repositories.

Any other suggestions?

You can try using YUM, I think there are instructions on how to do this on the Freshrpms site. I don't know where the problem is coz the main ayo repository seems to work fine on my pc. My configuration for that in /etc/apt/sources.list is below,

rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/3/i386 core updates freshrpms
#rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/3/i386 tupdates
#rpm-src http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/3/i386 core updates freshrpms
#rpm-src http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/3/i386 tupdates

core ok, size mismatch on the rest

I verified that I have the same entries in /etc/apt/sources.lis that you do. When I do a synaptic refresh, the core works properly, but I get messages from the rest.:

h++p://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/3/i386/base/pkglist.updates: Size mismatch
h++p://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/3/i386/base/pkglist.freshrpms: Size mismatch

I noticed that "base" is in the url, but not in the etc file.

I'll try Yum next.
