APT::Cache-Limit "8388608";

all of a sudden apt won't work! i tried adding that APT:Cache-Limit bit in apt.conf but it hasn't changed a thing.

Have you tried increasing that number to like 25000000 or 50000000? On second look, why do you have repositories for all those different versions of FC? You don't really want to mix versions like that. I think if you trim that down to just your version you won't get that error message.

looks like that's sorted it right enough. i have no idea how that happened, i don't usually do that sort of thing.

thanks though!
