Yum repository (dries) unable to update due to disk crash


Utilizing: Linux 2.6.22.9-61.fc6

After issuing the usual "yum check-update" via terminal I receive the following:

Setting up repositories
http://ftp.belnet.be/packages/dries....ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Date: Wed, 07 Nov 2007 04:09:01 GMT
Server: Apache
Content-Length: 373
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: dries

After checking the base URL, http://ftp.belnet.be/mirror/, I noticed why I was receiving a "404 error"--serious disk crash. Basically, I want to know if there are any reliable mirror(s) URLs I can add to the "mirrorlist=" line within dries.rpmforge.repo?

dries.rpmforge.repo contents
[dries]
name=Extra Fedora rpms dries - $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=http://ftp.belnet.be/packages/dries.ulyssis.org/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/dries/RPMS/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

I just noticed the same issue the other day. This site will help you out.

http://dries.ulyssis.org/rpm/mirrors.html

I changed mine to the freshrpms site without issue.

Good luck.

Good luck.
What was the syntax for your "mirrorlist=" line? I continue to receive the same (or similar) 404 Error. My syntax is below:

[dries]
name=Extra Fedora rpms dries - $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=http://ftp.belnet.be/packages/dries.ulyssis.org/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/dries/RPMS/
mirrorlist=http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/dag/dries/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/dries/RPMS/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

I'm using CentOS but it's more or less the same anyway. I would comment out the baseurl like this:

Code:
#baseurl=http://ftp.belnet.be/packages/dries.ulyssis.org/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/dries/RPMS/

Then change the "mirrorlist" to baseurl:

Code:
 [dries]
name=Extra Fedora rpms dries - $releasever - $basearch
#baseurl=http://ftp.belnet.be/packages/dries.ulyssis.org/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/dries/RPMS/
baseurl=http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/dag/dries/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/dries/RPMS/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
Then run:

Code:
yum clean all
Then run:

Code:
yum update all

If you are still getting problems, make the baseurl specific to your distro like this for fc6 i386:

Code:
 baseurl=http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/dag/dries/fedora/fc6/i386/dries/RPMS/

The run the yum clean and yum update all process. You should be fine then. Let us all know either way.

Success!
The following syntax worked:

Code:
 baseurl=http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/dag/dries/fedora/fc$releasever/$basearch/dries/RPMS/
