Yum Repository Problems on FC7


I am having problems getting YUM to work on one of my Fedora 7 machines... please see below.

Quote:
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mir...ra-7&arch=i386
error was
[Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Date: Fri, 13 Jun 2008 23:06:02 GMT
Server: Apache/2.2.4 (Fedora)
Content-Length: 208

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...ta/repomd.xml:
[Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Date: Fri, 13 Jun 2008 23:06:02 GMT

Content-Length: 249
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

However, if I visit the mirror list specified above it does exist and shows all applicable mirrors. I can't understand why I am getting a 404 error when I can both visit the links and use wget which finds and downloads the pages just fine.

I have the following repos in /etc/yum.repos.d:
-fedora-development.repo
-fedora.repo
-fedora-updates.repo

and here is the fedora.repo entries.. I manually changed the baseurls to FC6 as there does not appear to be a valid FC7 repo...

1 other thing to mention, I am behind a Mikrotik router which may be proxying the requests. Although, all authentication is bypassed for that device...any help would be appreciated, I have been strugling with this for some time now!

if the router IS proxying http requests do you have 'http_proxy' set in your environment? If I recall wget and yum interpreted '$http_proxy' differently - I think I usually set it something along the lines of 'http://proxy.server:80' and that works for yum and wget. Just a thought.

Well this(above) is not right. This would be for FC6 (/core/6/).

The other problem you are going to have to face is that very shortly (or possibly already) official support for F7 will be dropped (no more updates of any kind).

This MIGHT be better: http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...386/os/Fedora/
