YUM (Version 2.3.2)
(1) Can't point 'baseurl' in /etc/yum.repos.d/ ****.repo to a local ftp mirror in hongkong
The directory structure is exactly the same as many other mirrors, but the error states that the directory can't be changed and thus the repmod.xml file can't be read. Any ideas on why yum can't interact with this particular location?
(2) More problematic!! Can't use any of the 'Alternatative repos such as Dag, Freshrpms, .. etc.
When I set the repos up either in /etc/yum.conf or separately in /etc/yum.repos.d/**.repo yum complains that it can't read the repmod.xml! Any ideas here?
I have tried downgrading yum 2.3.2 to a lower version without repmod.xml requirement, but fedora won't recognise the new yum program.
# Yum works fine with the included FC4-test2 repos (development and development extras), but i need the nvidia modules and other stuff. Yes, i could do it manually but I would really like to get a fix to yum...
