Description Ville Skyttä 2008-08-08 17:51:22 EDT
$ yumdownloader --enablerepo=doesnotexist foo
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Cannot handle specific enablerepo/disablerepo options.

This error message is very misleading.  Unless I'm mistaken, yumdownloader can indeed handle such options; the actual problem in this case is instead that the "doesnotexist" repo does not exist.

Comment 1 Tim Lauridsen 2008-08-16 04:44:32 EDT
Fixed upstream.

now you will get this one.
$ yumdownloader --disablerepo=dummy foo
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Error getting repository data for dummy, repository not found
