Question Yum Fails During Install process


Am I on track here? I thought the FC5 changes to yum would allow something like the following; Note the failure messages at the end of the output. Is there a permissions problem with the drive which holds /home (/dev/hdb1)?

I'm stumped for the moment. Appreciate your input and help.

TIA

Dave

Hi

If you are trying to install xine, it does not appear you have the livna repo, which is where you will get xine for FC5. Follow the instructions on this site to add it to your repos:



Hope this helps

Bob

I hate to say it but Yum worked great in FC3 and then I fixed something that wasn't broken when I went to FC5.

It sounds like your /etc/yum.conf file is completely screwed up. You should try removing all but the default repositories, testing yum to see if it works correctly, and then replacing the livna repository.

A basic yum.conf file should look like this:

Code:
[core]
name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - core
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/core
[updates]
name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - updates
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/updates
[freshrpms]
name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - freshrpms
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms
If this work then add these lines to the file if the packages from the repository have already been installed.:

Code:
### See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/UsingExtras
### And insert here the Fedora Extras repository configuration

### And then add these lines to access rpm.livna.org repositories:
[livna-stable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.stable
gpgcheck=1

[livna-unstable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (unstable)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.unstable
gpgcheck=1

[livna-testing]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (testing)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.testing

And you can get the Xine software from the Dries repository as well.

OK, I changed yum.config:

[core]

baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/core
[updates]
name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - updates

[freshrpms]
name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - freshrpms
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms


Here is what I got now:

[root@localhost dave]# yum update
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in ?
yummain.main(sys.argv[1:])
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 80, in main

Where is the section 'main" suposed to be? Not in Yum .config I don't think ....

I apologize as the post that I made was misleading. I said that the /etc/yum.conf file should look one way when it should look like this WITH the repositories added:

Code:
# This is the fedorafaq.org yum.conf for Fedora Core 5.
#
# Note that you also need the rest of the configuration
# as described at http://www.fedorafaq.org/#yumconf
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
keepcache=0
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
obsoletes=1
# Don't check keys for localinstall
gpgcheck=0
plugins=1
metadata_expire=1800
# Changed this because some mirrors go down and then
# re-trying takes forever.
timeout=7


# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d

[core]
name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - core
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/core
[updates]
name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - updates
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/updates
[freshrpms]
name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - freshrpms
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms
The complaint about main was valid in that the "main" part of the yum.conf was in the beginning that I failed to mention in the first place. I assumed prior knowledge in my response so this is an error that I made as well as another. In order for this test to work you have to disable the other repository files in /etc/yum.repos.d meaning you want to change the file extentions to something like "file.repo.backup" so that yum doesn't execute them. If that works then you can incrementally reenable them until you get to the livna repo.

I hope this test goes well for you. I may have totally blown away my creditability on this one but I'm sure the mistakes won't discourage you in seeking more help even if not from me.

Good luck!

Well alright then! Things seem to be returning to normal but there's a slight bump at the freshRPMS repository. The thing that we want to take not of here are some problems that occured when you tried to install livna. the Livna repo is inconpatible with the FreshRPMS repo as well as others - (http://www.stanton-finley.net/fedora...notes.html#Yum). You will want to find another repo, namely the Dries repo that is compatible with the FreshRPMS repo that you have installed already. The link provided takes you to a major site for Fedora Core 5 configuration notes. Use this to configure Dries and other repositories that you will need should you get curious later on. Follow it's instructions on getting the Dries repo and make sure that your cyum configuration is inline with the instructions available there.

As for the repositories already in your /etc/yum.repos.d directory you will want to reenable the extras.repo. That is an essential repository for updating your OS.

I find it weird that FreshRPMS failed to retrieve that file. I tracked down the file it was looking for:

What yum had (or what you reported):
http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linu....2.1.i386.rpm:
Where I found it (where I think it should have went):
http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linu...4.2.1.i386.rpm

For this reason, should the reenabling of extras and the installation of Dries fails, I think that it would be best if you remove the FreshRPMS section of the /etc/yum.conf file and install it the way that is laid out at http://www.stanton-finley.net.

Hopefully this will get you even closer.

This looks like the rpm repos are not there -- 404 error.

I am getting tired of this problem. Is there a cononical list of places which DO have rpm's for yum?

I know this is very late reply however I just ran into the same issue

1- I installed apt-get
2- removed yum "apt-get remove yum"
3- ran update on the system "apt-get update"
4- installed yum again "apt-get install yum"
5- ran yum update and it worked

I think I should've ran "yum clean all" before i took the above steps maybe it could've solved the issue without needing to install apt


Thanks
