yum: $releasever set to 2.90


Hi everybody!

I was trying to use yum to update some pkgs in my system.

The problem is that the $releasever variable in my system is set to 2.90. I've read in the Fedora website I must not change this variable, 'cause the system takes care of it, meanwhile, none of the mirrors to get the updates has a 2.90 directory...

Here is what happens when trying to execute yum check-update:

Code:
[root@localhost rhn]# yum check-update

Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 2.90 - i386 - Base
retrygrab() failed for: http://www.las.ic.unicamp.br/pub/fed...rs/header.info
  Executing failover method
failover: out of servers to try
Error getting file http://www.las.ic.unicamp.br/pub/fed...rs/header.info
[Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
And here, the yum.conf file itself:

Code:
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release

Appreciate all your help!

Would it be a problem if I don't use the variable and instead use it hardcoded?

So...

Code:
[base]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
baseurl=http://www.las.ic.unicamp.br/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/
becomes:
Code:
[base]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
baseurl=http://www.las.ic.unicamp.br/pub/fedora/linux/core/1/$basearch/os/
How could it impact my package updates? Must I use "1" or "2"? What's the difference between them?

Tks!

Well, you upgraded to packages from the Fedora Core Development repository. Fedora Core 2.90 refers to the Fedora Core 3 Test 1 release. The version number is taken from the fedora-release package, which contains the /etc/fedora-release file, too. Going back to Fedora Core 2 or older won't work, because you would run into no end of package dependency problems. You have messed up your installation already. Take a look at the output of

rpm --query --all --last | less

and maybe post the relevant portion here to show what packages you installed last.

Hi, misc! Tks a lot for your response!

This is a little bit confuse for me. You said I've messed my installation up, but what did you mean? I have no choice but reinstalling the OS otherwise I cannot upgrade packages automatically using yum? Or do I have to uninstall all the last packages updates and take another step?

Follows the output I had with the rpm command (sorry, but actually I didn't know what the relevant portion would be, so I'm posting the first lines only due to message's length limit... should I post another lines?).

Thank you very much again!

This is a little bit confuse for me. You said I've messed my installation up, but what did you mean?
Well, I don't know exactly with which version of Fedora Core you started. You didn't tell. Most likely you started with Fedora Core 1 or 2 and upgraded to experimental packages from "Fedora Core Development". The corresponding entry for 'development' packages in your yum.conf is activated. You should not have activated that enty. Your /etc/yum.conf is not from Fedora Core 2.90, but from a stable Fedora Core release. Fedora Core 2.90 was a Test Release, namely Fedora Core 3 Test 1. The current test release is 2.92, also known as Fedora Core 3 Test 3.

The packages of test releases are located in a different directory, e.g. this one on the primary mirror (it is empty nowadays because 2.92 current):

Code:
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/test/2.90/
Note the 'test' directory in the path. Your yum.conf points the [base] entry to a stable release path, where 2.90 to 2.92 don't exist. With a test release, you would need to modify yum.conf and choose a different [base] entry and delete the [updates-released] entry.

I don't understand why you want to go back to packages from Fedora Core 1 or Fedora Core 2. Such a downgrade is not easily possible. Editing your yum.conf to point Yum to FC1/FC2 repositories won't work.

Quote:
I have no choice but reinstalling the OS otherwise I cannot upgrade packages automatically using yum?
Only other upgrade path would be to point Yum to Fedora Core 2.92 (the current test release). You can do that by modifying your yum.conf to point to the test release repository of your favourite mirror server and either by replacing $releasever with 2.92 or by upgrading the fedora-release package manually

With that done, Yum expands $releasever to 2.92 automatically. Browse your favourite mirror with a web browser to find out where the 'test' directory is. Verify that all baseurl= paths in your yum.conf exist on the specified servers.


Alternatively, delete the [base] and [updates-released] entries in your yum.conf and upgrade to Fedora Core Development. I bet this is not what you want.

Seems to have conflicts right now...

Hi misc! First of all, tks for your patience and all your support!

Actually, I had the FC Test 1 release (2.90) release installed in my machine. I followed your suggestions, updated both conf files (etc/yum.conf and /etc/fedora-release) and tried to update my actual installed packages, but seems I have a conflict between messages now. I got the following message when trying to update my packages:

Code:
[root@localhost bcampos]# yum update
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 2.92 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 2.92 - Development Tree
Downloading needed headers
Resolving dependencies
.conflict between xorg-x11-font-utils and xorg-x11-base-fonts
What is actually being resolved when "resolving dependencies"?

Could you give me other tips, pls?

Tks!

Okay, so you started with Test 1 release, but your yum.conf is not from/for a test release (as explained earlier).

'xorg-x11-base-fonts' do no exist anymore. Uninstall the package:

rpm --erase xorg-x11-base-fonts

Add option --nodeps in case that fails. Then run yum again.

Package dependencies. Packages depend on eachother. A package can require files or features provided by a different package.

Hmmm... makes sense the packages' dependencies.

I tried to erase the xorg-x11-base-fonts package, but seems it occurs dependencies on this package.

Code:
[root@localhost bcampos]# rpm --erase xorg-x11-base-fonts
error: Failed dependencies:
        xorg-x11-base-fonts = 6.7.0 is needed by (installed) xorg-x11-6.7.0-6
Need I uninstall the dependent package also? What is this package's functionality?

Thank you!
