rpm problem :s

hi all,

I wanted to create a kickstart config file with the system-config-kickstart tool that is delivered with FC6.

But when I run this tool, I get the followin error :s :

Cannot open logfile /tmp/tmpf03dtz/var/log/yum.log
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/system-config-kickstart", line 82, in ?
File "/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/", line 158, in __init__
self.packages_class = packages.Packages(xml, self.kickstartData)
File "/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/", line 161, in __init__
self.y = sckYumBase(pbar)
File "/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/", line 135, in __init__
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/", line 299, in doRepoSetup
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/", line 526, in setup
raise Errors.RepoError, ('Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: %s' % self)
yum.Errors.RepoError: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: core
I really dont know what i can do, I already rebuild the rpm database and removed the __db* files. But this has no effect.

Help would be very appreciated!
