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
Comment 2 gmiller 2009-04-07 12:08:19 EDT
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...

Comment 3 Rich Megginson 2009-04-07 12:11:39 EDT
yes, I had messed up the repo - sorry about that
Comment 4 gmiller 2009-04-07 12:25:30 EDT
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.
Comment 5 Rich Megginson 2009-04-07 12:49:58 EDT
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.
