stale rpms?

Post by worker201 » Wed Apr 27, 2005 2:35 pm

The freshrpms site for FC3:
http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/3/i386/

seems to have disappeared!
synaptic was rather unhappy!

Anybody know or hear anything?

Yeah, I noticed it last night. I think there is a file permissions problem that propogated out to all the mirrors according to what I saw on the FreshRPMS mailing list. I assume this will be cleared up in a day or so.

Hi All,

I'm still having problems with the ayo.freshrpms repository. Apt is warning me that there is no checksum information in the headers. Am I the only one still having these probelms, or is there still a problem with the repository? I checked the fedora-list and haven't seen anything posted there about a problem and this list has been silent on the probelm for a while. Should I proceed with the updates, comment out the ayo repository and then go ahead, or continue holding off updating?

The output of my "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade" command is as follows:

Code: Select all

And, yes, I have tried just running "apt-get update" separately and still get these warnings.

I switched all my sources.list files from ayo.freshrpms.net to ayo.us.freshrpms.net yesterday and last night things were still messed up but everything is now working. I figure I will get better response times using the US mirror since I am in the US. You might temporarily switch to it until the ayo.freshrpms.net is back in order. I have a feeling it will be by tomorrow. That was quite a mess things were in over there for sure. Never did hear a lot of details.

Thanks again Voidmain,

I changed the repository as you suggested and all was well.
