Description David Lawrence 2005-03-30 23:29:45 UTC
I just switched to download.fedoralegacy.org for my FC1 updates and can't seem
to get around this error:

Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
cups-1.1.19-13.2.legacy.i38  Retrieved.
cups-1.1.19-13.2.legacy.src  There was a fatal error communicating with the
server. The message was:

An HTTP error occurred:
Status Code: 404
Error Message: Not Found

The problem appears to be that
http://download.fedoralegacy.org/fedora/1/updates/i386//SRPMS is missing. When
look at some of the mirrors I used prior to switching to
download.fedoralegacy.org they all have both .../updates/SRPMS and
.../updates/i386/SRPMS, whereas download.fedoralegacy.org and its mirrors only
have .../updates/SRPMS.

I'm not an up2date user so I can't check this, but can you confirm that you have
followed the instructions at

Yes, I have followed the instructions at
http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs/up2date-fc1-reconfigure.php and RPM updates do
work. It is only the SRPM updates that don't work and I am quite sure it is due
to the missing SRPMS directory/sym-link that is missing.

I don't think I want to do this, as it will break people who are wgetting or
syncing that directory.  I'm sure they aren't expecting SRPMS inside an RPM
directory.  I never have liked the SRPMS inside the binary package directory

A better solution is just to post how people can alter their up2date settings
