Due to space issues I have made a few links into a larger partition, these were /tmp and /var/lib/yum/plugins/local. I changed /tmp to be in the root file system and made the link to local a link "../../../../export/home/var-lib-yum-plugins-local/". Now I get the above message. I'm NOT using UUID.
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
