Fedora :: Yum Cache So Big Even After It Clean All / Why Is So?

May 26, 2011

I have a small older HP OB6000 laptop with F14 on it and only 10GB of disk.

I've been weeding out a lot of packages I don't need on it to carve more user disk space.

One of the biggest disk consumers is /var/cache/yum. My problem is that even after a yum clean all it still consumes over 450MB.code...

I know JohnVV. "Install a supported version of Fedora, like Fedora 11". This is on a box that has all 11 releases of Fedora installed. It's a toy and I like to play around with it.

Software :: Redirecting APT Cache - Can Redirect Cache Of Apt To A Specified Folder Either On Command Line Or Via A Config Setting?

Jan 5, 2011

I was laughing about klackenfus's post with the ancient RH install, and then work has me dig up an old server that has been out of use for some time. It has some proprietary binaries installed that intentionally tries to hide files to prevent copying (and we are no longer paying for support or have install binaries), so a clean install is not preferable.

Basically it has been out of commission for so long, that the apt-get upgrade DL is larger than the /var partition (apt caches to /var/cache/apt/archives).

I can upgrade the bigger packages manually until I get under the threshold, but then I learn nothing new. So I'm curious if I can redirect the cache of apt to a specified folder either on the command line or via a config setting?

Fedora :: No Package Cache Is Available

I am using Fedora 11 64-bit. The problem is, when I start to install any updates or new packages, the system return the following error:No package cache is available.The package list needs to be rebuilt.This should have been done by the backend automatically.

Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again.I am completely new to linux, meaning I have never, ever, used a linux based system. I have recently accustomed to myself with only the basic commands (ls, yum, help, g++ etc.)

Fedora :: Cleaning Old Packages From Yum Cache?

Mar 12, 2010

I have enabled the option to keep the yum cache when updating Fedora 12 and I was wondering if there was a way in which I could remove old versions of the same package from the cache?

I have Fedora installed on more than one machine and I make them share a common update location for their updates to avoid downloading the same packages twice (bandwidth quota expensive in Australia).

how I could accomplish that? yum clean doesn't seem to have any options to only remove old packages!!!

Example: The yum update cache has:


I wish to only keep the most recent version that is wireshark-gnome-1.2.6-1.fc12.x86_64.rpm, but for all the packages.

Fedora :: Persistent DNS Cache - Make It Permanent?

Mar 10, 2010

i has setup a persistent DNS cache to improve my web-browsing. it works wonders and with my ICC built firefox my web-browsing is laser-fast, pretty much like using internet explorer in windows! however, everytime i reboot, my modifications to /etc/resolv.conf have been replaced... 1st. the file must contain:

# Generated by NetworkManager (obviously modified by this)
nameserver <----this is lost on reboot, and is needed to make it all work

i have tried to add this to - System/administration/network, but it doesn't seem to fix the problem. 2nd. my next problem is that when fedora 12 starts up,i need it to start "dnsmasq".i have tried to add it as a startup application, but it doesn't start automatically.so i end up having to start it manually everytime:

sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq start

it is annoying, but so far i just deal with it, because my browsing is that much faster! i am planning to post a tutorial for those interested in faster web-browsing in linux, but until i can make the changes perminent there isn't much point.

PS: i have tried to write a shell script to do this and every which way i try it fails

Fedora :: Firefox Doesn't Save Images From Cache?

Jul 27, 2010

I have a weird problem with Firefox with the following scenario: When I view a picture from a website in the browser and the pictures gets deleted from the server (while I'm viewing it) - I can't save the picture to my hard drive. Firefox always tries to download the picture from the web-server although it's in the cache. Resulting in an image file which contains the HTTP 404 response from the server. *lol*
