Yum Errno -1 after installing gimp2 from fedora.us - testing


Hi all;

I installed gimp2 with
Code:
yum install gimp2
which completed successfully. However, when I run
Code:
yum update
I recieve the following errors:

Code:
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora-KDE3.2
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora.us Extras (Stable)
Server: Fedora.us Extras (Testing)
Server: Fedora.us Extras (Unstable)
Server: Livna.org - Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
Server: Livna.org - Fedora Compatible Packages (testing)
Server: Livna.org - Fedora Compatible Packages (unstable)
Server: macromedia.mplug.org - Flash Plugin

Error getting file -url removed-              mirrors.kernel.org
[Errno -1] Header cannot be opened or does not match gimp2, None.
Attempting to remove the package with
Code:
yum remove gimp2
gives the same error.
Code:
rpm -e gimp2
fixes things but removes gimp2!

Any clues?

It would seem that the gimp2 rpm you downloaded was corrupt. You can either try to download another rpm, or install gimp2 from source.
