Question Error message using Synaptic


Hello all,

I have installed Fedora Core 1.
I have also installed apt and synaptic.
I have configured the /etc/apt/sources.list, /etc/yum.conf, and /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources files
When I launch synaptic I get the following error message:

Release file did not contain checksum information for http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linu...pkglist.extras

Release file did not contain checksum information for http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linu...release.extras

Release file did not contain checksum information for http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linu...t.alternatives

Release file did not contain checksum information for http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linu...e.alternatives

Release file did not contain checksum information for http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linu...srclist.extras

Release file did not contain checksum information for http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linu...t.alternatives

Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

The following are my Repository configuration files:

/etc/yum.conf:

debuglevel=2

/etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources


### this describes the various package repos up2date will look into
### for packages. It currently supports apt-rpm repos, yum repos,
### and "dir" repos


### format is one repo entry per line, # starts comments, the
### first word on each line is the type of repo.

### the defalt rhn (using "default" as the url means
### use the one in the up2date config file
#up2date default

### When a channel-label is required for the non up2date repo's,
### the label is soley used as an internal identifier and is not
### based on the url or any other info from the repo.

### an apt style repo, this time arjanv's 2.6 kernel repo
### format is:
### type channel-label service:server path repo name

#apt arjan-2.6-kernel-i386 http://people.redhat.com ~arjanv/2.5/ kernel

### Note that for apt repos, there can be multiple repo names specificed
### space seperated.

### an yum style repo
### format:
### type channel-label url

yum fedora-core-1 http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/1/i386/yum/os
yum updates-released http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...updates/1/i386
yum updates-testing http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...testing/1/i386

### an local directory full of packages
### format
#dir my-favorite-rpms-i386-9 /var/spool/RPMS/


# multiple versions of all repos except "up2date" can be used. Depenencies
# can be resolved "cross-repo" if need be.

Well synaptic is a GUI frontend to apt so there may be something wrong with your sources.list. I'll see if I can find an answer to this.

Seems I'm having a similar problem. Must be something wrong with the repositories.

O.k. I figured it out....
I am such a

I checked the directory structure of http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/1/i386/
There is not a extras or alternatives directory. I must have copied this from a website without checking. I replaced "extra alternatives" with "tupdates" (which is a directory).
Viola! It lives without errors.

Here is my new sources.list file:

# Initially generated by thebluester

rpm http://rpm.livna.org/ fedora/1/i386 stable unstable testing
rpm-src http://rpm.livna.org/ fedora/1/i386 stable unstable testing

rpm ftp://apt-rpm.tuxfamily.org/apt fedora/1/i386 os updates testing extra
rpm-src ftp://apt-rpm.tuxfamily.org/apt fedora/1/i386 os updates testing extra

# Fedora Linux 1
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 core updates freshrpms
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 tupdates
rpm-src http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 core updates freshrpms
rpm-src http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 tupdates




Thanks for the help. ;-)
