Exclamation yum & yumex hanging while fedora-updates repo is active


Hi all,
I installed fedora 8 few days ago on my laptop.
I had no problem starting from a live-KDE dvd, fully working with wireless and no problem at all, but from yesterday yum and yumex hangs if fedora-updates.repo is enabled. I have no idea of what's going on.. other repos work correctly...
here is my fedora-updates.repo :


[updates]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - Updates
failovermethod=priority
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/updates/$releasever/$basearch/
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-f$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora

[updates-debuginfo]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - Updates - Debug
failovermethod=priority
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/updates/$releasever/$basearch/debug/
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-debug-f$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora

[updates-source]
name=Fedora $releasever - Updates Source
failovermethod=priority
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/updates/$releasever/SRPMS/
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-source-f$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora




Any ideas? Suggestion?

I cna't see anything off the top but is this the repos from the fedora-release-8-3.noarch.rpm?
If not then I would install that rpm and then you would have the repos for Fedora 8.

ehm, I really don't know. I just installed from the live-KDE DVD... I have not managed any rpm for the fedora's repo (excluded the external ones, like livna etc.)

EDIT: when i try to get the fedora-release-8-3.noarch.rpm with this command, it takes a while and then complains about the package already installed....

rpm -Uhv http://mirror.anl.gov/pub/fedora/lin...8-3.noarch.rpm

You mention that yum or yumex hangs, are you sure it isn't just working in the background. I would consider a process hung if it goes into a loop or stops using any cpu. Check to see if it is still performing work by using the top command. If so, take a break for a while and let it do its thing.

I found that the first time yum or pirut were executed they took quite some time to get through their initial setup. The initial run of pup actually exited abnormally. After that I tried yum update and let it run to completion. pup now works with the smaller workload. Hopefully PackageKit in F9 will be an improvement.

ADDED: The listing from your fedora-updates.repo looks exactly like mine with the exception of mine being enabled=1.

I would force it to reinstall. I think the repo you have does not point to something right.
rpm -Uhv http://mirror.anl.gov/pub/fedora/lin...8-3.noarch.rpm --force

ok, I made some tests, before trying to force.
It doesn't hang. It's more like a lot of time to process. It stays al 60% (before building the list of pakages avaiable) for about 20 minutes. After that, it goes to 70% (building the list of pakages) and in 40-60 seconds it starts.
It's very strange.
maybe something with my config is wrong?

After the first time I ran yum and pirut it started working much more quickly. Is it working any better now or still taking forever? Did you change any of the config? The repo entries look just like mine. Only other thing I can think of is a slow mirror. There are ways to improve the mirror selection if you want to try it check out this thread. It looks like they changed failovermethod to be priority in F8. I think I'm going to set mine back to roundrobbin and see what happens.

I don't know what happened, but now it's working again...
I think it's a problem with timeout of servers...
