Question Updates Are Borking

I Hi,

I seamlessly upgraded from Fedora 15 to Fedora 16 using PreUpgrade (simply genius). There is one problem though. When I update through Yum Extender, I get the following error message:

17:39:32 : WARNING: Failure getting http://kdeforge.unl.edu/apt/kde-redh...ta/repomd.xml:
17:39:32 : WARNING: Trying other mirror.
17:39:32 : WARNING: Failure getting http://mirror.unl.edu/kde-redhat/fed...ta/repomd.xml:

17:39:34 : WARNING: Failure getting http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub...ta/repomd.xml:
17:39:34 : WARNING: Trying other mirror.



I am also running KDE 4.7 desktop.

I will see if I can also find the answer through Google searches as well.

Any and all help is always appreciated!

Re: Updates Are Borking

The link in the .repo file is wrong, or so it appears. The first error you posted is looking for
http://kdeforge.unl.edu/apt/kde-redh...ta/repomd.xml: It doesn't seem to exist.

I get this far with my browser
http://kdeforge.unl.edu/apt/kde-redhat/fedora/16/i386/


Unless you need this repository you can disable it, temporarily with
PHP Code:
yum --disablerepo=kdeforge install super-kool-package 
(replace kdeforge with whatever it's called) Permanently by changing enabled=1 to enabled=0 in the .repo file. Alternatively, you can correct the error and carry on as usual.

Hmmmm... Why does the url contain "apt"?

Re: Updates Are Borking

Can't I clear all of the repos and update with the ones I need?

Re: Updates Are Borking

Update: I ended up having to remove the repo by typing in terminal: rm /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-kde47.repo

This repo was from Fedora People and they do not have the latest KDE repo for Fedora 16 which was causing the errors.

Now I am trying to figure out how to download the repo from KDE Packaging Project (Fedora edition) through terminal. I tried wget command yet got nowhere.

Re: Updates Are Borking

The disable option won't work if the name of the repository is not correct. My example was a guess on the name.

Switch to your yum repos folder
PHP Code:
cd /etc/yum/repos.d
Then download with
PHP Code:
wget http://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/kde-redhat/fedora/kde.repo 
Try yum repolist. The repository should be listed.

Looks like you need to make sure that the rpmfusion repos are installed as well as the EPEL repositories.
