Comment 1 Ronny Fischer 2006-05-08 17:39:25 UTC
Tried an uninstall/reinstall of xterm, following happened:

With "rpm -ihv xterm-...." - The terminal doesn't start anyway

With "yum install xterm" following messages occur on EVERY! server

[ERRNO 4] IO Error: [Errno ftp error] Requested range not satisfiable due to 
unobtainable file lenght 

[ERRNO 9] IO Error: [Errno ftp error] Requested range not satisfiable

What happened?

Comment 2 Ronny Fischer 2006-05-09 10:12:13 UTC
This seems to be a bug of yum.

After reinstalling Fedora Core 5, I tried an update via yum. Some packages work
without problems, but when trying to update xterm, yum or anacron the same error
messages appear.

Last update via YUM did not include an update of gnome-terminal, but did include
vte (vte.i386 0.12.1-1.fc5.1) and xterm (xterm.i386 212-1.FC5). Cannot get YUM
to restore the (old) version of vte from the Core repository.

Comment 4 sean 2006-05-18 14:30:53 UTC
YUM d/l development builds of vte, gnome-terminal (a dependency). Terminal
functioning again.
