up2date not work for SRPMS
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:06 EDT
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.src There was a fatal error communicating with the

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

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
