View Full Version : Question about yum

17th October 2007, 03:53 PM
I can not yum install any software. (except file-devel several minutes ago ;))

No mater what software I wanna download and install by using "yum install software-name", the system always download "primary sqlite bz2", after finishing 100%, it shows metadata file does not match checksum, and re-download it from another mirror. Afrer trying all mirrors (all are failed), it will tell me can not download anying.

I wonder whether "primary sqlite bz2" involves the download and installation of all software in Fedora. How to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance!

Is this a new installation of Fedora7? Go ahead and try a simple "yum clean all" in a terminal and then try yum install packagename and see what you get after that.

Thank you for your reply!
This is the first time I install a fedora-7.
But, I got the same thing after "yum clean all" + "yum install WantedSoftware":the system is still downloading "primary sqlite bz2"
