updates with yum
 
hi

I am using FC8. I am regularly using yum for updating purposes. I am also using the plug-in presto.

I gave the command yum update and it showed a list of updates for various applications.

here the issue is that, with respect to mozilla firefox, it was shown that size is 21M.

Quote:

firefox i386 2.0.0.14-1.fc8 updates 21 M
I observed at the time of downloading too. It is as follows:

Quote:

(5/16): firefox-2.0.0.14- 100% |=========================| 21 MB 08:55
yum substantiated with presto is supposed to download only the delta RPM (as per my knowledge goes, probably it means that only the files which changed) whose size will be ultimately very less........

when I checked the www.mozilla.com/en-US/ ; It is showing that size is only 9.2MB.

Can any body please explain me what is happening here????? :(

well it's not the same package, it's a rebuild by fedora, containing various changes. is there actually a problem here? if you're expecting a drpm to be used, then i assume you've not configured presto correctly, or you don't have a suitable pacakge already installed, http://lesloueizeh.com/f8/i386/updates/DRPMS/

dear moderator,

Can you please explain me a one or two changes with clear examples...

even if there are any changes, how far is it feasible, of doing changes which ultimately increases the size from 9.2 M.B. to 21 M.B.

Quote:

you've not configured presto correctly
I installed presto like this

Code:

yum install yum-presto
do i need to do any further work to make it function in a still better way?

Quote:

If i don't have a suitable package already installed, it installs ok. If this is the case, I hope it should not be clubbed with the size of the firefox package. In other words it has to show it as two different entities(of course in two rows) separately. But this is not the thing which is happening....

acid_kewpie 04-29-2008 03:27 AM

TBH, i'm not sure what fedora's differences are. I think they add in a LOT of language packs for one.

i'd never heard of presto, so i went on google and saw a number of installation guides, i'd suggest you do the same.

Are you sure that there is a delta rpm available for firefox from the fedora repos? not every package has delta rpms available.

chakka.lokesh 05-02-2008 12:24 AM

I am not sure. I need to check.

can u plz tell me how to check it.....

chakka.lokesh 05-11-2008 11:06 PM

this seems to be the solution............
 
the same question i posted in the yum mailing list. one person replied me with the following stuff...

fedora's firefox includes many langpacks built-in.


and to me this seems to be a convincing answer to some extent.............

acid_kewpie 05-12-2008 03:29 AM

sure, but then that's nothing to do with the question you asked about presto...

chakka.lokesh 05-12-2008 04:23 AM

that is the reason why i kept the words SOME EXTENT...

any way, again i will question that reply

Using Presto in fedora
 
Unfortunately, until the official yum repositories are presto-enabled, running
Code:

yum install yum-presto
isn't enough to get the deltarpms. You have to also edit the fedora-updates.repo file as specified in http://presto.fedorahosted.org. I hope this helps.

acid_kewpie 05-12-2008 01:02 PM

yeah i told that earlier, maybe he'll read it this time... :)

chakka.lokesh 05-13-2008 01:25 AM

hi jdieter

I gone through the link u provided.

the file: /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo contains the following:
Quote:

From the link provided

Quote:

To use the presto repository in Fedora 8, you need to change your baseurl in /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo to point to the one below.
i386: baseurl=http://lesloueizeh.com/f8/i386/updates
x86_64: baseurl=http://dl.anmar.eu.org/repos/f8/updates-x86_64
What isn't clear about this? CHange the updates repo base URL. It's the first entry (the one that's call Updates)

jdieter 05-13-2008 01:34 AM

You need to put a # in front of mirrorlist in the [updates] section, remove the # in front of baseurl, and change it to http://lesloueizeh.com/f8/i386/updates. So the section should look like this:
Quote:

[updates]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - Updates
failovermethod=priority
baseurl=http://lesloueizeh.com/f8/i386/updates
#mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-f$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora

You may find you will need to comment out the gpgcheck and gpgkey lines as well. Try it first, but these should fail.
