Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186055
Mirror list is incomplete
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:40:12 EDT
The list of the Fedora mirrors, which is used by yum is incomplete.
Unfortunately, this breaks yum in some cases, because yum takes the only mirror
and attempts to perform a "REST" command, which isn't supported by the Fedora
download server. Due to lack of other mirrors, yum stops working.
Attached you find a simple script for generating a preliminary list. It reads
the official mirror list and adds the required subdirectories.
Created attachment 126390 [details]
Perl script for creating a preliminary mirror list.
'download.fedoraproject.org', which should be the sole host listed in the mirror
list, should redirect you to a random mirror. There were some hiccups where the
list of Fedora mirrors used by yum listed 'download.fedora.redhat.com' instead
of download.fedoraproject.org, but this should be fixed within an hour.
At the moment (2006-03-22 13:47 GMT+1)
returns a file that consists of 34 copies of the same line:
I suspect that should actually be returning 34 *different* mirrors? OR does yum
do something other than what wget does? My "yum update" seems to be pulling
exclusively from download.fedoraproject.org and is *VERY* *VERY* slow.
download.fedoraproject.org redirects to a random mirror.
It will be slow because tons of people are downloading FC5. Can't help that part :)
