postinstallerf for fedora 26


has any one got "postinstallerf" installed on Fedora 26?
I follow the instructions on sourceforge, git and on the web site but get a result to say that
postinstallerf can not be found.

What are you doing exactly? Is this a fedora package? Is it a source package? What are you doing when you get the error?

I have followed the instructions as per;

https://sourceforge.net/projects/postinstaller/
1) su

2) dnf -y install wget

3) rpm --import https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kuboosoft/postinstallerf/master/GPG/$(rpm -E %fedora)/RPM-GPG-KEY-postinstallerf

4) wget -P /etc/yum.repos.d/ https://raw.github.com/kuboosoft/pos...nstallerf.repo

5) dnf clean all && dnf -y install postinstallerf

The first 4 steps all run ok and the repo is installed. When I come to do step 5 the following results.

# dnf install postinstallerf
Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'postinstallerf', disabling.
Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'postinstallerf-updates', disabling.
Last metadata expiration check: 0:19:57 ago on Thu 17 Aug 2017 11:13:23 AEST.
No package postinstallerf available.
Error: Unable to find a match


I get the same result if I try to use the instructions at the web site

PostInstallerF Web Site http://kuboosoft.blogspot.com.au/p/blog-page_10.html

and if I try the instructions at the Github location.
https://github.com/kuboosoft/postinstallerf

Thanks

Look for this file: /etc/yum.repos.d/postinstallerf.repo.

The contents of /etc/yum.repos.d/installerf.repo

[postinstallerf]
name=PostInstallerF
baseurl=http://sourceforge.net/projects/postinstaller/files/fedora/releases/$re$
enabled=1
metadata_expire=2d
gpgcheck=1
repo_gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kuboosoft/postinstallerf/master/GPG/$r$
skip_if_unavailable=1



[postinstallerf-source]
name=PostInstallerF-Source
baseurl=http://sourceforge.net/projects/postinstaller/files/fedora/releases/$re$
enabled=0
metadata_expire=2d
gpgcheck=1
repo_gpgcheck=1

Seems ok to me but I am not that familiar with the format of these files.

From what you've posted everything looks correct. Try this command
Code:
$ dnf upgrade --refresh
