yum mirror 404's on non-i386 hardware
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:54:24 EST
Description of problem:
When using yum on non-i386 hardware, it is very common to get 404 errors as not
every mirror has non-386 packages. (I use ppc, but is not specific to ppc).
Steps to Reproduce:
yum install packagename
This could be fixed by changing the way the mirroring works. Have the yum
configs be architecture specific and have them only contain mirrors that support
Work on the way that mirrors are handled may have fixed this problem. Can you
please verify and, if appropriate, close this bug?
This should be much better with the way we do mirrorlists now
