Question yum no longer working - but yumex does?


Hi all,

I have a strange problem that just started. If I run 'yum update' it eventually times out or just hangs when it gets to "Setting up repositories". However, if I use yumex it will work.

I have no idea why this is since I thought that yumex used the same repositories and configuration as yum.

Any ideas?

This is FC4 by the way...
Here's the repos:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 603 Jul 24 2005 atrpms.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 321 Nov 29 2005 dag.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 175 Nov 29 2005 dries.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1123 Jun 3 2005 fedora-devel.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 312 Jun 3 2005 fedora-extras-devel.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 299 Jun 3 2005 fedora-extras.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 294 Jun 3 2005 fedora.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 330 Jun 3 2005 fedora-updates.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 337 Jun 3 2005 fedora-updates-testing.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 279 Jul 24 2005 flash.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 270 Jul 25 2005 freshrpms.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1152 Jul 24 2005 jpackage.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1602 Jul 25 2005 kde-redhat.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 513 Nov 29 2005 livna.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 236 Jul 25 2005 newrpms.repo

a list of filenames is of no use at all... what actaully happens when you run the yum command? show us the console output.

Here you go...

Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: livna
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: livna

Looks like the livna.repo is porked. I have not modified it.
This being the case, below is the livna.repo:
[livna]
name=Livna.org - Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
#baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.lvn/
mirrorlist=http://rpm.livna.org/mirrorlist
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna
enabled=1


[livna-testing]
name=Livna.org - Fedora Compatible Packages (testing)
#baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.lvn-testing
mirrorlist=http://rpm.livna.org/mirrorlist-testing
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna
enabled=0

Should the baseurl be commented out?

Uncomment the baseurl section for the livna repo. The entry for livna should then look like this
Code:
[livna]
name=Livna.org - Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.lvn/
mirrorlist=http://rpm.livna.org/mirrorlist
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna
enabled=1

That did the trick, I still wonder how it was comment out to begin with.

Thanks for all the help.

it was commented out in favour of the mirrorlist: http://rpm.livna.org/mirrorlist a list that you do not need to maintain yourself. the mirrorlist file there looks totally valid though...
