Hey, Dan. Sorry, but bug 136754 is about problems on 86-64 machines.
Mine is an i386-only problem. Also I tried what was described in bug
136754 but it did not work. So I am requesting another look at this one.
Here's what was suggested to place into /etc/yum.conf
# cat /etc/yum.conf
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Updates
Here's what happened:
# yum update openoffice.org
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Base
retrygrab() failed for:
Executing failover method
failover: out of servers to try
Error getting file
[Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
What do we try next?
Restored yum.conf to as-installed version, not special version show
previously, and was able to update openoffice.org manually in two
yum update openoffice.org
yum update openoffice.org-i18n
Lesson learned: if up2date chokes, try yum update
