Description JokeDude 2007-09-13 03:22:59 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Not sure, happens sporadically, usually after reboot or network restart

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
Yum takes a few minutes to start (GUI) and then display warning about a bug.

Expected results:
Yum should start almost immediately

Additional info:
I have experience of yum taking up to 10 minutes to activate the GUI once it is
loaded. The process is running and I cannot see any reason for the slow
response. DNS is working and I can connect to the web.

Forgot to mention, that after this error occurs, re-running Yum tends to work 100%
Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2007-09-13 08:46:38 EDT
reassigning to pirut
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-13 10:42:49 EDT
What are the contents of /etc/yum.repos.d/adobe-linux.repo.  Can you access the
URL listed in the file?
Comment 5 JokeDude 2007-09-13 11:32:13 EDT
/etc/yum.repos.d/adobe-linux.repo contents are:
name=Adobe Systems Incorporated


I can connect to the site via a web browser, but it says access forbidden
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-13 11:56:48 EDT
Can you access http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/i386/repodata/repomd.xml ?

(And fix is already in pirut to handle the error better, and will be pushed for
Fedora 7 within the next week or so.  But trying to get to he bottom of the error)
Comment 7 JokeDude 2007-09-14 03:48:37 EDT
I can access http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/i386/repodata/repomd.xml

Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-16 14:14:56 EDT
An updated pirut packages is available in the Fedora 7 Updates Testing
repository which should help to resolve this problem.  Can you install this
package by running
   yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update pirut
and then see if you still can reproduce this problem?
