Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Yum isn't working and I don't understand the error message. The first time I ran yum with the command yum check-update and it returned a long list of packages that could be updated. I then rand the command yum update and I got the following error message:
. Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
. Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base
. Traceback (most recent call last):
. File "/usr/bin/yum", line 60, in ?
. File "yummain.py", line 188, in main
. File "clientStuff.py", line 766, in get_package_info_from_servers
. File "clientStuff.py", line 103, in HeaderInfoNevralLoad
. ValueError: unpack list of wrong size
. [root@localhost root]#
I then tried running the update command with specific packages and kept getting the same error message. When I try and use yum check-update again it also returns the same error message.

I'm running a fully installed version of Fedora Core realease 1 (Yarrow) on a PIII 600 Mhz with 128 MB Ram. The reason I'm trying to update using Yum is because up2date won't work. Red Hat Network has no channel for Fedora Core 1 being run on an i686. (I'm quite new with Linux, only bought the computer about a month ago).
Thanks very much. It worked out great, though I did need to comment out the DAG repository to avoid the GPG check stuff. Something I'll look into in the next while.
One last question is about architechture. Does anyone know if I ought to set exactarch to exactarch=0 given that I'm running Core 1 from an i686? Would I have to worry about yum updating beyond an i686 down the road and thus causing problems?
