Thanks, Brydon. Removing "core/" helped YUM to work again. Given that your fix was posted 6 months ago, I wonder how this slipped by for the final release.

In my case I think that it was because I did an upgrade, still no excuse. Going to have to try a new install one day to see if it is a bug.

Cheers

I've been having similar problems with F7 recently. After a lot of faffing about, I tried using Package Updater from the Software Updater menu item, rather than Yum Extender, KYum or yum on the command line. This seems to have sorted my updates and I'm all up-to-date again!

Hope this might help someone who is experiencing similar difficulties.

Regards

Ray

Cool

Back when Red Hat Linux was a product delivered by Red Hat Inc. in its final form, the user community had little visibility into the decisions that affected the distribution. One of the early promises that came with the Fedora Project was that the important discussions would happen in a public forum. Things have not always happened that way, and a number of things still seem to happen by anonymous decree. It is true, however, that the public discussion has grown more vibrant as the wider Fedora community insists on having its say.

One recurring discussion has to do with one of those decisions by decree: Fedora Core 5 lacks the "install everything" option which has characterized Red Hat releases for many years. The reasons behind this change make some sense: it is increasingly hard to support as the distribution grows, and as the distribution is split between "core" and "extras." Some packages conflict with others, making a true "everything" install impossible in any case. Installing everything is an invitation to unnecessary security problems. And the Anaconda installer has been reworked around a yum-based backend which is not so well equipped to do "everything" installs in any case. Administrators who do a lot of "everything" installs can use kickstart to obtain something close to the old behavior.

So removing this option was not an unreasonable thing to do. But the community was not involved in the decision, and quite a few Fedora users are most unhappy with the change. Since there was no discussion - not even an announcement of the change - these unhappy users continue to fill the Fedora lists with complaints; it is beginning to look like one of those threads which never really goes away. But, "install everything" has gone away, and appears highly unlikely to return.

A more relevant discussion, perhaps, is this one: what is to happen with evolution in Fedora Core? The state of the FC5 evolution package is evidently so poor that some Red Hat developers are suggesting that it should be shoved out to Fedora Extras, or dropped altogether:

Evolution in extras is a bad idea. Evolution in core is a worse idea. What other as good as unmaintained large buggy package exposed to external attack and with known unfixed DoS bugs (and probably worse yet to be found) do we ship.

Evolution belongs in the bitbucket.

Hi
I have tried d4x too and from my experience it... well, sux
Why? Slow and inconsistant download spees even with 3 or more segments downloaded at a time; stopping downloads without a reason and without being able to resume even when FTP allows it and the most important thing: either i didn't found that option, or this proggie always wanted to download all files from the list at the same time instead of putting them in queue.
That's what i think about d4x.

As for other download accelerators/managers: proZilla works great and it splits the file like any self-respecting d/a would. It even have graphical GUI add-on but it's terrible imo.

Right now i'm tryin Aria - it's quite nice and it have all i need, but i didn't tested it on big files yet. Downloading 442MB now...

vishva2005 that is because fedora 6 is dead and has past it's End Of Life and is no longer supported . I think there is only one OLD mirror that even has a copy of the install cd's
if you want to continue to use a dead and unsupported install then ALL software must be installed from the source code with
---
./configure
make
make install

------------------
install fedora 8 or 9
fedora 10 is due in a few months and is in testing .
