Jan 22, 2011

How to be sure that my yum is working? I think its not working as: if I enter on terminal I find the error: Code: yum install yumex many lines saying trying other mirror and then at the last line: Code: python-enum-0.4.3-6.fc12.noarch: failure: Packages/python-enum-0.4.3-6.fc12.noarch.rpm from fedora: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

Server :: ErrNo 14 And ErrNo 256 In Yum Configuration

May 21, 2011

I have installed CentOS 5.6 guest in vmware. This machine has host-only networking. I would like to install vmware-tools, which requires that gcc be installed. (As vmware tools is not yet configured, I cannot copy paste the error. So I am typing it out). As gcc has dependancies, I thought of configuring a local yum repository via http. http is already up and running fine.These are the steps I did:

I mounted the iso as loopback in /mnt/cdrom.

cd /var/www/html
mkdir -p yum/base-pkg

/var/www/html/yum/base-pkg is where all the rpm's going to be served via http will be present. I am changing the ownership of /var/www/html/yum/base-pkg to apache:apache, though not sure if this step is required.

chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html/yum/base-pkg
Now, cd /mnt/cdrom
ls CentOS | wc -l
shows 2684

I am copying these 2684 packages as follows:

cp -avr CentOS/* /var/www/html/yum/base-pkg

I am also copying the directory "repodata" as follows:

cp -R repodata/* /var/www/html/yum/base-pkg
Now, cd /etc/yum.repos.d

ls shows the following files:


I am renaming the .repo directories to something else. I hope this will ensure that yum will not look into the default repositories, rather will look only into my custom repository file.

for i in $(ls); do mv $i $; done

Now I am creating my repository file named mylocal.repo (in /etc/yum.repos.d)

touch mylocal.repo
vi mylocal.repo
name=Centos $releasever - $basearch

I am having a problem with installing mysql and mysql-workbench. I installed a group of packages related to mysql on my system and it seemed to work fine.

Fedora :: Yum Update Through Mirrors Very Slow / Speed It Up?

Aug 7, 2010

Does anyone know if the Yum fastestmirror plugin only makes decisions based on latency to pick the best host or does it measure bandwidth? On my laptop for the last few weeks I've been getting super slow yum updates (3.5kB/sec), when I force it to use the baseurl it runs as fast as I'd expect (160+KB/sec).

So the fastestmirror plugin doesn't seem to work unless maybe it's measuring latency as fast but the actual download speed is slow. If so, fastestmirror plugin should really take both into account.

I am about to try Fedora 12. I noticed that most of the mirrors listed for this in lq have 2 isos. The first download listed has 4 - Live, Live 2, Live KDE, Live KDE 2. If I choose to use gnome instead of KDE, can I just burn and install the first two?

Fedora :: Yum Update - Keeps Hanging And Switching Mirrors During Downloads

Jul 20, 2009

Almost every other time I run yum update, I'm getting mirror problems - this is losing all my confidence in Fedora for several reasons: a) it's wasting time - what should be 1-2 minute updates are taking 5-10 minutes and often (like tonight) not even completing b) since it keeps hanging and switiching mirrors during downloads I wonder if the updates are coming thru okay c) the fact this is not being seriously addressed makes me wonder re Fedora quality. Add to that the constant and real annoying kernel errors popping up re network manager and sierra wireless (even when my sprint card is not plugged in).

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade From 11 To 12 Via Preupgrade / Mirrors Return "HTTP Error 404: Not Found"?

Sep 21, 2010

I`m having a problem with upgrading my Fedora 11 to either Fedora 12 or Fedora 13. When i start preupgrade, it lists all packages that need to be upgraded, but then it ends with the message that none of the mirrors can be found. I`m seeing the messages in the console, and indeed all the mirrors return "HTTP Error 404: Not Found". Any idea how to change this and eventually do an upgrade?. I also downloaded the Fedora 13 DVD, and tried to upgrade that way, but it never showed me the window which must give me the option to upgrade instead of doing a fresh install. The explanation in the official website clearly shows that this window exist, but after several tries with the DVD I did not get it.

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 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.

Ubuntu :: Downloading From Several Mirrors Simultaneously?

Feb 12, 2011

I'm tring to download an iso image that's over 3GB. The file is hosted at several ftp mirrors. Is there a way to download the file from several of these mirrors simultaneously so that I can reduce the D/L time? Presently, it's will take close to 24hrs to D/L from just one mirror. I have a 25Mbps connection so my bandwidth is not an issue.

Slackware :: Mirrors Use A Standard Template?

Apr 26, 2011

I have been looking at some mirror pages and I came across an oddity. As my knowledge of HTML, CSS and web page design could be written on the head of pin with room to accommodate the Slackbook, perhaps someone can explain.


What I note is that there are just 23 characters for the name in the first and third, whereas the second has more characters that generally does not truncate the name. Am I right in thinking that this is due to a different template being used when accessing via Debian? Is there some reason for why the filenames are truncated to 23 characters when accessing via Slackware? (Perhaps to keep the overall field length within 80 characters?)

Ubuntu :: Compiz Headtracking Hall Of Mirrors Effect?

Dec 8, 2010

recently I managed to install a plugin for Compiz that allows for head tracking. After getting past one hurdle after another I finally managed to compile it and made the webcam work with it in a 64-bit environment... Unfortunately, after I got this all working, the plugin constantly glitches out by zooming out immensely, distorting my desktop, and gives me a hall of mirrors effect. I know the plugin works because if I set some settings to minimum effect, it successfully tracks me and positions windows accordingly. But this makes the effect all jumpy and only works for periods of about 1.5 seconds then just doesn't do anything after that. Also, mouse tracking works flawlessly.
