Hi im running Fedora core 2 and when i run yum update i get the following results, this is a snippet of the end of the update:

Its saying that several files are not an ELF file - it has the wrong magic bytes at the start. and they are truncated..any ideas what to do or how to fix?

thanks

Try going to:
http://fr.rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html...ibnewt.so.0.51

You can get it there. After downloading, type:
rpm -Uvh newt.0.51.6-2.1.1.i386.rpm

Enjoy!
