Description Craig Schlenter 2007-09-04 09:46:33 EDT
Yum is downloading metadata when it shouldn't have to - surely it can't
need metadata when I am asking it to clean everything? Yum version is 3.2.4
btw.

root@linux~]# yum clean all

Thanks!

Comment 4 Jan ONDREJ 2007-09-10 09:19:50 EDT
My bug writes also something about a filtering these unnecessary downloads for
yum update or yum install:

May be yum can detect this after downloading 2-3 files and re-download
repomd.xml from same server as primary.sqlite file.
Is it possible to implement something like this?
Comment 5 Seth Vidal 2007-09-10 09:49:00 EDT
install/update downloads of metadata is another thing that is hard to address
right now.

If you're talking about a stale repomd.xml file then some of that is supposed to
be handled by mirrormanager.
