Decided you upgrade my Mandrake 9.0 distro last night and went for
Fedora. So I downloaded the three iso's and installed the distro.
On the installation one note - When I picked to use disk druid it was
giving out about the partitions that my mandrake install created and
would not use them, so I had to go back in and backup my data and nuke
the partitions. Not a biggy it was mostly a machine for testing software
that was built in house anyway.
But to my question....
Using the default yum.conf I proceeded to do a yum list and after about
an hour of downloading header files (old machine on a cable internet
link) if I do a yum install <package> I get the following....
[root at www root]# yum -y install postfix
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Released Updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
I will do the following:
[install: postfix 2:2.0.11-5.i386]
postfix-2.0.11-5.i386.rpm 100% |=========================| 252 kB 05:32
error: rpmts_HdrFromFdno: MD5 digest: BAD
It then proceeds to download and install, in this case, postfix. Is this
a configuration problem of have I missed a step when getting the initial
information from the yum repository.
