Installation using Yum fails
Last modified: 2015-01-04 18:37:46 EST
Description of problem:
Attempting to install on clean install of CentOS 5.3 using the instructions provided at http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Download
Yum returns the following errror:
http://directory.fedoraproject.org/yum/dirsrv/fedora/6/noarch/RPMS/repodata/filelists.xml.gz: [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/filelists.xml.gz from dirsrv-noarch: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
Tried running yum clean all - didn't help.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Has occurred every time I have tried on 4/6/2009 and 4/7/2009.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with a clean installation of CentOS 5.3
2. Download and modify the repo files on the FDS download page as documented
3. Run yum install fedora-ds
I cannot reproduce - I've got a clean install of CentOS 5.3 x86 32-bit
could be a problem with the squid cache on directory.fedoraproject.org - try it again
I tried it again - same thing. I rebooted the server, ran yum clean all again, and still the same thing. I was called away from my desk for 15 minutes. When I returned, I tried it again and this time it worked perfectly. I guess the problem cleared itself up...
yes, I had messed up the repo - sorry about that
Thanks for all of the help!!!
I may have spoken too soon, though.
Yum was able to download everything properly except for one rpm:
fedora-ds-admin-1.1.7-2.fc6.i386.rpm | 360 kB 00:01
http://directory.fedoraproject.org/yum/dirsrv/fedora/6/i386/RPMS/fedora-ds-admin-1.1.7-2.fc6.i386.rpm: [Errno -1] Package does not match intended download
Trying other mirror.
Error Downloading Packages:
fedora-ds-admin-1.1.7-2.fc6.i386: failure: fedora-ds-admin-1.1.7-2.fc6.i386.rpm from dirsrv: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
I have retried this several times, and have even tried yum clean all again.
Try it again - should be fixed now.
There seems to be a lot of traffic today. It took me 3 tries to download all of the packages due to network timeouts and other network failures.
