"No more mirrors to try." -- Some mirrors may be down or overloaded. Sometimes you have to wait for a while and try again.

In your case do a "gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/freshrpms.repo" as root and substitute:


[core]
name=FreshRPMS-Core
baseurl=http://ayo.us5.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/core
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
#[extras]
#name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - extras
#baseurl=http://ayo.us5.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/extras
#enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
[updates]
name=FreshRPMS-Updates
baseurl=http://ayo.us5.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/updates
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
[freshrpms]
name=FreshRPMS-Fresh
baseurl=http://ayo.us5.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

for:


[core]
name=FreshRPMS-Core
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/core
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
#[extras]
#name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - extras
#baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/extras
#enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
[updates]
name=FreshRPMS-Updates
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/updates
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
[freshrpms]
name=FreshRPMS-Fresh
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

Do "yum remove gnbd-kernel dlm-kernel cman-kernel" as root. These modules went with kernel 2.6.12-1.1390_FC4 anyway and you will be getting 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 with your update. Then do your "yum update". After your update you can do a "yum install gnbd-kernel dlm-kernel cman-kernel" if you want them back. (I did not.) Google for them if you don't know what they are for.

I probably need to further clarify a point in my next revision of Fedora Core 4 Installation Notes (http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_4_installation_notes.html). The Notes are written on the premise that the user has chosen an "everything" installation at install time. If you have not installed everything there will be things in your installation that the Notes mention that you won't have. In other words the Notes are based upon the presumption that you have followed the instructions pretty much from the beginning, following each recommendation in order, including installing everything.

You misunderstand. When you choose an "everything" install at FC4 install time Apache 2.0.54, MySQL Ver 14.7 Distrib 4.1.11, PHP 5.0.4 and Perl v5.8.6 and many other things are installed for you. The Notes (http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_4_installation_notes.html) are then applicable to this particular installation scenario.
