Description of problem:
Upgraded to fc3t2 from fc2. Some time ago I had modified my fc2
yum.conf to point to some mirrors. I used the yum.conf from fedorafaq.
After install finished and I booted into the os the rhn applet showed
many updates. I tried to use up2date but it's incredibly slow.
Decided to revert to yum.
Yum gave several 404 errors. I noticed that in the /etc folder there
was a yum.conf.rpmnew file, so I replaced my modified yum.conf file
with the rpmnew version and everything worked perfectly.
Maybe this isn't a bug, or maybe it is but it won't be an issue when
things go live and mirrors get copies of the fc3 final.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. modify the yum.conf file on a working fc2 system using the yum.conf
file from fedorafaq (http://www.fedorafaq.org/samples/yum.conf)
2. upgrade to fc2t2
3. try to do a yum --update command.
Actual Results: 404 errors
Expected Results: Should have had an updated system
Fix this problem by replacing your modified /etc/yum.conf with
Well, you don't want to change a modified yum.conf in general, so I
believe this is behaving more or less as expected.
