View Full Version : yum install pkgconfig - error concerning macromedia ?

15th September 2006, 05:36 PM
I have been trying to install a few thing on Fedora core 5 (in order to get an interface for my Zen Micro) and it keeps saying it needs pkg-config. on a search I found that it can be installed via yum. So I try to install it and I get

[Crowds@localhost ~]$ su
[root@localhost Crowds]# yum install pkgconfig
Loading "installonlyn" plugin

macromedia [6/8]
http://macromedia.rediris.es/rpm/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 12] Timeout: <urlopen error timed out>
Trying other mirror.
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: macromedia
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from macromedia: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from macromedia: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
[root@localhost Crowds]#

!!! ?? Why is it asking to get a file from macromedia ? This is odd. Ahhh but the other day I did install WINE so i could try to get Dreamweaver running on FC5 (it didnt work ;) ) so this could have something to do with it :rolleyes:

any ideas ?

Huh? I have just tried again and it now seems to have worked just fine !?!

Yum goes through all the configured and enabled repositories when looking for any package. It can't know that the repo called "macromedia" doesn't have a package called "pkgconfig" without looking there. The repo had a temporary problem and didn't respond fast enough the first time you tried.
