Hi iam using Scientific Linux version 2.6.9-67.EL.cernsmp (root@lxcert-i386) (gcc version 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-9)) #1 SMP Wed Nov 21 16:22:33 CET 2007. I want to install PIDGIN latest version. For that i have downloaded pidgin gpg key manuallu from
Code:

and import.
Then i downloaded pidgin.repo and save it in /etc/yum.repos.d/

Then when i type
Code:
yum install pidgin

to install it .The following error message comesout:
Code:

Trying other mirror.
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: slc4-extra

Hi,

First thing to check is if the mirror still exists/works - I suspect its a mirror problem as this error usually indicates a 404 error.

Also post the output of

Code:
# cat /etc/resolv.conf
If it isn't an issue with the repo itself, I suspect you don't have your DNS specified correctly which would result in the above.

Well, no file 'repomd.xml' in any repodata/ for the moment.
Just check for yourself :
http://linuxsoft.cern.ch/cern/slc4X/i386/yum/extras/
http://linuxsoft.cern.ch/cern/slc4X/i386/extras/RPMS/
http://linuxsoft.cern.ch/cern/slc48/extras/i386/RPMS/
http://linuxsoft.cern.ch/cern/slc4X/updates/i386/RPMS/

May be ask them http://linux.web.cern.ch/linux/scientific4/
.. Should be supported at least until Oct. 2010.

Pidgin repo

baseurl=http://rpm.pidgin.im/rhel/4/i386/

... seems to be OK.
But it may depend on the other repos.
