terminal doesn't start

Expected results:

Additional info:

Update was made via rpm, with no errors. Downgrade via Uninstall/Reinstall 
doesn't work, too.
Comment 1 Ronny Fischer 2006-05-08 13:39:25 EDT
Tried an uninstall/reinstall of xterm, following happened:

With "rpm -ihv xterm-...." - The terminal doesn't start anyway

With "yum install xterm" following messages occur on EVERY! server

[ERRNO 4] IO Error: [Errno ftp error] Requested range not satisfiable due to 
unobtainable file lenght 

[ERRNO 9] IO Error: [Errno ftp error] Requested range not satisfiable

What happened?
Comment 2 Ronny Fischer 2006-05-09 06:12:13 EDT
This seems to be a bug of yum.

After reinstalling Fedora Core 5, I tried an update via yum. Some packages work
without problems, but when trying to update xterm, yum or anacron the same error
messages appear.
Comment 3 sean 2006-05-10 23:32:57 EDT
Last update via YUM did not include an update of gnome-terminal, but did include
vte (vte.i386 0.12.1-1.fc5.1) and xterm (xterm.i386 212-1.FC5). Cannot get YUM
to restore the (old) version of vte from the Core repository.
Comment 4 sean 2006-05-18 10:30:53 EDT
YUM d/l development builds of vte, gnome-terminal (a dependency). Terminal
functioning again.
