FC4 KDE and GNOME Load Slow


I installed Fedora Core 4 test 1 and it takes about ten minutes for Gnome to load. Is there a solution?

Yes, a bug in gdm. Drop to console, kill gdm and yum for the latest version.

Sorry I'm not quite an expert with Fedora. Do you meen the Failsafe Terminal you can choose from the session list or can I get into a console outside of gdm?

Sorry, when you are at the login prompt hit "ALT+Ctrl+F1" this will drop you to the console, failsafe should work also. Log in as root then do "yum update gdm"

Once that is complete reboot and you should be set. Once the system is running normally do a "yum -y update" This will upgrade your entire system, there are about 800 megs of updates so it will take a while.

It's asking me to download gpg keys but when i enter the command it shows (rpm --import public.gpg.key) it didn't work. Is this URL incorrect or am I out of luck?

Well, you have two choices! You can edit the /etc/yum.conf file. Find the command that says gpg something=1 and change it to =0, then do the "yum update gdm" or do an "up2date gdm --nosig"

Try either or both of those and let me know what happens.

Thanks "up2date gdm --nosig" worked well I didnt want to bother with the editting. I assume it was alright not to change the settings that were offered when I entered that command.
Well Thanks a bunch it works great.

No problem. I wish there was a command to ignore the gpg in yum (without editing the .conf), as-far-as I know it doesn't exist. Make sure you get the rest of the updates, Up2date in Gnome, KDE whatever should work fine once you have the gdm update.

Well I tried editing the yum.conf file but I must have hurt a repo. It says: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: development
up2date isn't working now either not quite sure what the problem with it is.

Here is my yum.conf, gpgcheck=0 is the one you should have changed.

Code:
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
retries=20
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=0

# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d

That's odd. I have the exact same thing. It may have something to do with the fact that I downloaded gpg keys from "up2date". Do you happen to know how to get rid of them?

Try this, do a "rpm -e yum" then download the yum rpm from here:

http://mirror.hiwaay.net/redhat/fedo...1-3.noarch.rpm

then "rpm -i yum-2.3.1-3.noarch.rpm" Then "yum -y update" once it has installed.

Hope that works, Andy.

I'm missing a dependency (python-something) I can't remember exactly. I'm going to try one more reinstall but if that doesn't solve my problem I might just switch over to slackware. It comes with a lot of wms. I would install them but I've had bad luck. Thanks a lot for all of your help Andy.

Wish me luck,
Kelly

No problem man, you might try forcing it "rpm -i --force yum-2.3.1-3.noarch.rpm"

I finally got up2date to work. I guess it just didn't like my home network. When I brought it back to school it worked fine. I did try to force the yum install and I still got a failed dependency. I'll have to update everything else tonight I guess.
Thanks again,
Kelly
