View Full Version : FC3 install - broke everything!
9th January 2005, 12:31 PM
I've just moved from FC2 to FC3 in an attempt to get my WinTV DVB card working (more development in FC3 now than FC2).
But the FC3 install has broken :
yum (no mirrors)
I also need to get the 2.6.9-1.667 sources, so I can patch the changes for my DVB card.
FC3 has no sources - you need to build them using rpmbuild.
I have no rpmbuild! or rpm-build
I downloaded the rpmbuild.rpm from rpm.org, but that has loads of dependencies - which need to be manually loaded......because FC3 broke yum and apt-get
ARRRGH!!! I'm several steps behind again!!!!

neither yum nor apt are broke by FC3. you may need to make some changes to your repo lists though. there are a few threads detailing this and a few with fairly full repo lists. rhere are also other kernels available than the 667 through apt/yum. i installed the 2.6.9-1.724 on friday and the 2.6.10 kernels have also begun appearing. maybe one of them already has the required patches in place.

I've loaded the following in yum.conf, and all appears well :
name=Dag APT Repository
name=Dries APT/YUM Repository
name=ATrpms - Stable
name=ATrpms - Testing
name=ATrpms - Bleeding

Note, with the latest 2.6 kernels, you do not need the full kernel sources installed in order to compile kernel modules. This is why the kernel-sources rpms are no longer part of the core distribution.

whenever i ad repos to my yum.conf it doesnt let me download and install a thing, have u tried using the up2date tool?

I've found apt-get seems to work fine as well :
Get the latest version of the ATrpms-kickstart tool from:
Now install the apt package list by entering the following:
# rpm –Uvh atrpms-kickstart-25-1.rhfc3.at.i386.rpm
Now we'll run a command that fetches all the latest metadata for apt to
process, so it knows what is out there and available to install:
# apt-get update
With Fedora Core 3, there's a little intermediate step that wasn't
necessary with FC2, but it'll save some trouble at dist-upgrade time:
# apt-get install apt yum modutils
