Yum.conf

I upgraded from FC3 to FC4T3. But i am not able to do a yum update.
Could someone post their yum.conf so that I can copy into mine.

also launching up2date says that i should upgrade to the newer version of up2date-4.4.23-4 before updating anything else. But installing graphically from the rhn site gives me an error that gnome-up2date is missing.

Any ideas? I am at my wits end figuring out a way to update.

Thanking you,
Vishnu Murahari Rao.

I tried the yum.conf that was provided by Nels664868. But still get the same error. I dont have a clue to what the problem is. The following is the o/p of yum update.
[root@camp-94-30 yum.repos.d]# yum update
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
development 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
extras-development 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
base 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: extras
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from extras: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
[root@camp-94-30 yum.repos.d]#


Any help appreciated.

Ok disabled the fedora-extras which i had in my yum.conf. Now its updating. Thank you for the help.

Can I configure my yum.conf to download the required stuff from a mirror which is located in my university. I happened to download a dvd iso and was stunned by the download speed. so to make things faster i would like to get all the stuff from the university mirror. Any ideas?

if I remember right I disabled the extra.repo in the new install of FC4t3
edit the file /etc/yum.repo.d/fedora-extras.repo (i think thats what is called)
change 'enable=1' to 'enable=0"

that file is removed by an update

Yep thats right. I guessed after seeing your post. I already did that. Thanks a lot. Any ideas to the second part of my question in my earlier post.

Nels664868,

In your yum.conf I notice that you have gpgcheck=0 for the extras-development repo. Could you tell me why. I put gpgcheck =1. I did an yum update and got the following error. Could it because I put gpgcheck=1. When I started off with FC3 I was advised to always keep gpgcheck=1. I never thought why. Should I keep gpgcheck=0 or 1.

I tried updating the kernel, gcc etc. Each time it stops the update because there is some unsigned package. Then I set gpgcheck=0 for the repos one at a time. setting gpgcheck=0 in the fedora-devel.repo solves it. I dont know why. Maybe some one could shed light on it. What is the significance of gpgcheck=1 or 0.
