Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Just booted my machine (last updated on yesterday) and
it took about 20-30 minutes before got popup announcing 4 new updates.
Between boot and popup yum-updatesd connected to a mirror, downloading again
and again file /var/cache/yum/fedora/primary.sqlite.bz,
about 4MB in size, with full speed of my connection.
Then after some time downloading stopped and a new connection was made to other
mirror and same downloading continued. Then again after some time another mirror
In total, after update was successfully completed, 11 connections in CLOSE_WAIT
state and I noticed only one connection closed OK.
Noticed also bug #287371, maybe describing same problem?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
I don't see this with newer relesaes. Please reopen if you see this with more
current releases of Fedora
