Description Donald Cohen 2006-05-11 19:08:33 EDT
Description of problem:
I frequently get output (mail) from the yum cron job with complaints
similar to these (just a sample):

//var/cache/yum/base/repomd.xml:26: parser error : Opening and ending tag misma\
tch: img line 26 and td 
es/standard/images/pm-topright.gif' width='10' alt='' height='8' border='0'></t\
//var/cache/yum/base/repomd.xml:27: parser error : Opening and ending tag misma\
tch: td line 26 and tr 
//var/cache/yum/base/repomd.xml:29: parser error : Opening and ending tag misma\
tch: img line 29 and td 
/themes/standard/images/spacer.gif' alt='' width='6' height='60' border='0'></t\

I suppose this is not a bug in yum itself, but rather in the data it reads. 
Never the less, I hope there's something to be done about it.  This happens
with high frequency and affects (I gather) many machines.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum.noarch                               2.4.1-1.fc4            installed 

How reproducible:
Turn on automatic update and wait.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
seem examples above

Expected results:
no complaints similar to those above

This is that your machine is pointing to a mirror which doesn't actually have
bits.  We've made some improvements to the mirror infrastructure to help avoid
problems like this
