Fedora Servers :: Cannot Create Local 13 Repo: Pycurl Error 6?

Aug 16, 2010

I'm in the process of creating local repos for our company servers (CentOS 5.5) and laptops (Fedora 13). And while the CentOS part went perfect the Fedora part is causing major trouble.

But first things first, here's the setup: a central CentOS 5.5 server is running Apache2 and has a VirtualHost listening on Port 8080 for both CentOS and Fedora. The DocumentRoot for this VirtualHost is /data/repo wherein two directories, centos and fedora, reside.

This is the .repo-file for CentOS that works like a charm:


name=CentOS-$releasever - local packages for $basearch

After the CentOS repository was up and running I follwed the exact same steps and was expecting to find a Fedora repo up and running (I know, I know, silly me...). However, yum complains it cannot download the repomd.xml. The .repo-File is as follows:


name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch

Yum returns the following error message:

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: local. Please verify its path and try again

The path is definitely correct - copying the url and pasting it into a webbrowser returns the correct repomd.xml file, so does pasting it to wget.

Any ideas? Does createrepo need any parameters in order to create a working Fedora repository?

Fedora Installation :: PYCURL ERROR 6 "Cannot Retrieve Repository Metadata"

Mar 2, 2010

I wanted to get some additional life out of a computer with 256MB of RAM, and discovered that FC12 was the only version of Linux I was able to install (out of the distros attempted). The installer went into text mode automatically, configuring only the root account. I used text-based tools after the first boot to configure networking, and installed a couple of additional packages with yum. Then I issued "yum update," and it retrieved and installed the available updates. That was the last time I used yum successfully, though. I obtained such error messages as "14: PYCURL ERROR 6" and "Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. verify its path and try again."

I discovered that such problems had been encountered by others, and had sometimes been solved by such methods as adding repositories to yum.conf, adding lines to /etc/hosts, adding a line to resolv.conf, tampering with fedora.repo or fedora updates.repo, or even with "yum clean all." None of these methods worked for me, however. My initial impression of Fedora is favorable, so I might like to try it even on a system where it wasn't the only available choice. Package management is essential to success with any OS, however, so I need to get past this issue.

Fedora :: Yum Broken Errno 14 PYCURL ERROR 7 (Cannot Retrieve Repository Metadata (repomd.xml) For Repository)

Dec 27, 2009

yum is completely broken. I cannot install or update any software. yum is always throwing:

Code: Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=free-fedora-12&arch=x86_64 error was 14: PYCURL ERROR 7 - "" Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rpmfusion-free. Please verify its path and try again I have tried globally to disable the gpg check as stated in other threads. I have no proxies or such in yum.conf or in my bashrc. If I manually click on the link it will resolve in firefox so I am sure it is not my net connection per se, it seems yum or curl is adding a : to the end of the url thats why it wont resolve properly.

I have done a yum clean all , which didnt really help either. reinstalling the rpmfusion repos isnt an option either as I start getting curl errors in the terminal. I am really at a loss here and am completely out of ideas as I cant install any updates or software , at first I thought the repositories were having problems with the holidays but this has been going on for 4 days now. /var/log/messages isnt showing anything either.

Fedora Installation :: Creating Local Repo For HTTP / FTP Installs

Jul 15, 2009

I'm having trouble installing Fedora 11 using the URL method. When I put in a F11 netinstall CD, or even Disc 1, I press tab on the first option and add "askmethod" to the end of the text. Each time I point the installer to my local FTP and press enter after typing in the FTP url, the installer just hangs there. I've even tried deleting ALL the files from the F11 folder on my FTP server and downloaded ALL the files at:

Still...the same thing.
When I pointed the installer to:
Everything worked fine, albeit slow as it was DL from the NCSU FTP server.
Am I doing something wrong with my FTP server? It is anon, so there is no authentication issues.

Fedora :: Create Own Local Yum Repositories

Dec 14, 2010

I'd like to share my notes with all on how I create local yum repositories. By local I mean that the rpm files are on a computer here at home, not somewhere out in cyberspace. I've done this since Fedora 9 with both the "Fedora" repository and the install DVD.This how to was written with Fedora 14 in mind but should work equally as well with any earlier release.Hopefully, if we did everything right, there will be no errors and you will see your new repository listed amongst the normal Fedora repositories. Your new repository is now ready for use.This completes this section on how to create a local yum repository for the installation DVD rpm files.

Server :: RHEL 6 Local YUM Repo?

Aug 18, 2011

I'm trying to build a local YUM repository for RHEL 6 and am running into an issue. I can get the repo to build, but I cannot get the gruoplist. I can't find a comps.xml file to run the createrepo -g command against, like there is in RHEL 5. Here's what I have so far:

mkdir /yumrepo
copied RHEL 6 DVD contents to /yumrepo/rhel6
createrepo /yumrepo/rhel6/Packages
(repo builds its lis of 3500+ packages)
yum list shows the lsit of all files within the repo correctly.

I run gpk-application, and I receive the error "The group list was invalid." I need to create the group list. But I can't figure out how? Can someone please explain what I'm missing here? Never had this much trouble with 5, but I know a lot has changed with 6.

Software :: Installing From Local Repo

Sep 13, 2010

I have created a local repository to install linux with. (class assignment) Created the following file structure off of /html directory;


copied the contents of the packages from my fedora dvd;

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt
cd /mnt/Packages
cp -v * /var/www/html/yum/base/13/i386
cd /
umount /mnt

using rsync against fedora mirror updated the base to have compete set of .rpm packages from the Everything directory. Ran createrepo /var/www/html/yum/base/13/i386 Verified repodata folder was created and the contents are correct, shown below


Boot the PC and start the install using a kickstart file (if you need to see it let me know), all runs fine until it gets to the point of resolving dependency then it errors out - unable to resolve dependency against the repository. May not be the exact phrasing but generally speaking to that effect.

Fedora :: How To Create A Local Repository Server

Feb 24, 2010

Well my local LUG has developed a cooperation with the university. Their major is music. So we would like to develop a local repository to help the updates to be faster. I checked the How to set up a local Yum Repository on Fedora 8. I guess it's same with 12.
My questions are:

1. How much space do we need?

2. Since we might setup repository for another distro, is it a way to be done with other distro? The above address describes only how to make it in Fedora.

3. Since we'll have it installed and will be usefull for the university, can we make it available to the rest of the world? Maybe contact someone for this.

Fedora Servers :: Package-cleanup Showing 13 Orphans That Are Still In Repo?

I recently upgraded two servers to F10 from F9 and one of them is having an issue where package-cleanup is showing 13 packages which are incorrectly orphaned (no longer in the repo). Has anyone seen this before and know how to resolve this? Is it simply because the packages are listed in the repo as "fc10" vs "fc9"?

OpenSUSE :: Removing A Repo - Error "can't Find The Data For The 'problem' Repo"

Nov 20, 2010

I wasn't paying proper attention when adding a repo to yast and need to find the file were the info is saved to delete this. The problem is that whenever i use yast it comes up with an error code saying that it can't find the data for the 'problem' repo. Have tried zypper rm but that comes up with a similar error advising that the data is in a format that was not expected. My thinking is to track the file were the yast repo source details are saved, delete this and then just add the repos that i use back.
