    Fedora Core 5 mirror configuration

    Hi

    The primary mirror list at Red Hat site is currently inaccessible due to heavy traffic. Use the following configuration which uses a dynamic mirror management script that checks to make sure mirrors are in sync and directs you to the nearest mirror by default. This is the same system used by default in Fedora Core 6

    Hi Rahul,

    I tried this technique, in FC4, it did not work.

    [updates-released]
    name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
    #10-25-06 following was not used.
    #baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/$releasever/$basearch/
    #Following line was changed on 10-25-06
    #mirrorlist=http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/updates-released-fc$releasever
    #To
    mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-$releasever&arch=$basearch

    enabled=1
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora


    -------

    yum list available SDL*
    Setting up repositories
    Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates-released


    Do you know what is the status of FC4 repositories.

    Wow, has FC6 generated more traffic than any other release? I think that we should look into another method of hosting rpms, perhaps used a torrent/p2p style method and have yum use it as a last resort that way when the mirror gets bogged down we can switch to it and help each other out. Hmm, I am not quite sure how that would be implemented but it's sounds possibile.

    FC4 is maintained by http://fedoralegacy.org. It was moved over when FC6 Test 2 was released.

    Yes FC6 traffic has been very high compared to previous releases. Bittorrent is not suitable for providing yum updates. Check yum-devel list for detailed discussions on this.

    FC6 x86_64 updates are broken

    FC6 x86_64 yum updates are currently broken -- the repository servers are puking with a python error. You can work around the problem by editing the fedora-core.repo, fedora-extras.repo, and fedora-updates.repo files (all located in /etc/yum.repos.d. directory) and add (no quotes) "&country=global" to the end of each mirrorlist url.

    For example, if you find this:
    Code:
    mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=core-$releasever&arch=$basearch
    it should look like this when you're done:
    Code:
    mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=core-$releasever&arch=$basearch&country=global
    I've attached the files with my edits for your reference and/or use.

    I'll agree that there was still a problem with the Updates mirror list - couldn't get that working, although Core stopped complaining at least. Fortunately, I already had Apt/Synaptic installed and simply tried to update that way. It worked fine. Probably Smart is also still an option.

    I was able to get FC5 updates-released to work by changing:
    mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-fc$releasever&arch=$basearch
    to:
    mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-$releasever&arch=$basearch
    ^^

    Just remove the fc from $releasever and it might go.

    Worked for me on FC5 fresh install along with the other edits from nt4cats.
