Hi all, am a not so newbie of Linux, if that makes any sense, and i have this problem thats nearly making bash ma pc to the
wall but sanity instantly kicks back in when i think of the amount of cash i paid to acquire it.
Am gona get straight to the point : what exactly does the error
"Failed to retrieve Fedora/RPMS/thepackagenamehere from core Error was [errno 4]IOError : <urlopen error unknown url type : media>" mean.
Am trying to update my freshly installed FC6 system from my DVD and it always gives me the above error. I have googled, asked the whole net
(BTW, i think ask.com is kicking google's butt) and i have come around some couple of pointers of how to update FC6 from installation
DVD but when i try to update, i keep on getting that very frustrating error.
Now if someone could please just explain tyo me what the error means, me being a programmer i have come to understand that the biggest favor
you can ever do to yourself is first to understand the error and thereafter understanding the other nitty gritty will be child's play.
So again i just want to understand the error and what it really means then maybe i can finally be on my way to getting this thing to rest.
P.S i have tried almost all the suggestion in LQ and there was one from #$%#%$% that looked like it would help, but when i came to execute
the createrepo command, AGAIN my system doesn't know the command, now am almost thinking that YUM has something against me.
Anyway, guys i just need to know the detailed meaning of the error and also if anyone has the number to the guy who is in charge of YUM tool
at Fedora, please give it to me so that i call the guy and ask him what he has against me(syke).
And oh, if anyone has any other suggestions on how to effectively update FC6 from the DVD, don't hesitate to give your
suggestion. Waiting for your quick replies.
