FreshRPM repo problem


I added the fresh rpm and dag repositories for yum whe ni installed and i imported the correct GPG keys.

It worked fien for like a month but now when run

yum update

i get this:

Setting up Update Process
Setting up Repos
dag 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
base 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
updates-released 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
freshrpms 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files
dag : ################################################## 2216/2216
base : ################################################## 2622/2622
updates-re: ################################################## 872/872
primary.xml.gz 100% |=========================| 150 kB 00:01
http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linu...rimary.xml.gz:[Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/primary.xml.gz from freshrpms: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

However when i disable that repo yum works fine, which is a pain cause freshrpms has the most packages

Any help would be much appreciated

You could try synaptic.

"Synaptic is a graphical frontend for apt. Synaptic is used very much like apt-get."

One of the hardest things about installing packages when you are a new user is the failed-dependencies. Depending on your background this could be a simple case of installing required libs or a nightmare beyond reason.
Then came Synaptic.
If you are missing dependencies Synaptic will ever so kindly find them for you.
Although originally designed as a Debian tool, it works quite well with RedHat/Fedora. You may require apt-get is already installed.
grab apt-get for RPMs: to install the package.

Hey, if the tool works, It wins

The Freshrpms repository has had some problems in the last few days. Try using a mirror.
