• F11, F12 Yum problem

    From Steve@110:300/1.1 to All on Sat Jan 23 09:00:33 2010
    Hi,

    I tried to install F11 and F12 and the "yum" seems not to work very well..
    I goggle it and I can see a lot of people having this kind of problem,
    but I can't really see how to fix it

    - Is there a general way to fix it ?

    Thanks

    I've run both releases.
    "yum" works very well.

    Please give us a hint.
    What kind of problem are you having?

    [root@localhost toto]# yum install vsftpd
    loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
    could not retrieve mirror httpd://mirrors.fedoraporject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-10&arch=i386
    error was
    [errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name ir service not known')>
    Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata ( repomd.xml) for repository: fedora.
    Please verify its path and try again


    This is exactly what I receive with a fresh installation of Fedora :-(

    I also have CentOS -> No problem at all for any upgrade...


    Thanks for your help

    ^^^^^^^^^

    That looks like a Fedora 10 repository.
    Are you trying to upgrade Fedora 10 to Fedora 11?

    If so, follow the instructions here:

    http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/YumUpgradeFaq

    I just went from 10 to 11.
    There was only one minor problem which I resolved
    by removing a package.

    I would _not_ try going from 10 to 12.
    Upgrades can be tricky, if you want to try it, do one
    release at a time.

    Hi,

    I think that I have an idea of the problem...
    I have the feeling that the repository place, is linked to the place
    where you are installing Fedora.
    I am in France and apparently, the system goes directly to the french repository, which is not a http site , but an ftp site. Fedora cannot
    cope with that..

    I replace manual the 'baseurl' and it seems to be able to download what
    it needs

    Now, I am facing some other problems, that I can't explain...
    Some of websites are available... some are not available.. ( when ALL of
    them, will be displayed on CentOS....

    I disactivated iptables and I disactivated selinux.. ( I think that it's correctly removed.
    As soon as I write a website into Mozilla, I have 50% of chance to view
    the page... or I have a "page unavaible"
    I checked the DNS : a nslookup of the "faulty" website, show me the
    correct address...

    Any idea what "feature" block my access ?

    Thanks

    Sounds like DNS issues.

    Hi,
    Yes, that sounds to be a DNS issue.
    but we have 2 CentOS and 3 Ubuntu, which work fine !

    Effectively, I wrote by hand. So, sorry for the typo :-(

    We running our DNS server. Usually, I give our DNS server + one Open
    source DNS

    Into Fedora, I have :

    /etc/resolv.conf
    nameserver 134.29.9.59 ; this is our DNS Server
    nameserver 208.67.222.222 ; The opensource one : www.opendns.com


    /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4 ::1 localhost local.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6


    I compared with the hosts and resolv files on Centos. They are similar.
    today I made a nslookup www.bbc.co.uk
    I got :
    ;; Got SERVFAIL reply from 134.29.9.59, trying next server
    ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

    I can do it 20 times... 20 times 'wrong' and another tome -> I received
    the answer....

    Apparently, I've got the problem with Fedora 10 11 et 12
    Fedora 7 works fine...
    Something has changed with the releases........ but i don't know what :-(

    Also look in /etc/nsswitch.conf.
    Make sure the "host" line doesn't call for nis or nisplus.
    It should be:

    hi

    After many tests, I don't have anything stable from Fedora version 10 => 12
    I will stay with the version 9.. I have no choice...
    i think that there is some problems.....

    I checked the DNS in each case... seems to be fine now... but the GUI
    cannot catch the website.
    If you ask 10 times a specific website, it will appear 4 times.... but 6
    times ..." Website not available"
    I made the test on 2 differenet machines

    All my Centos and Ubuntu are working fine on the network..
    I reproduce exactly the same config on CentOS and on Fedora... I don't
    have the same result / Behaviour


    I am surprised that I cannot find anything clear answer on this problem
    on google ?!?

    Thanks anyway for your help

    Remember that 'nslookup' doesn't use the same configuration files as
    a regular application. Specifically, it ignores /etc/nsswitch.conf
    and uses a different resolver library.

    We running our DNS server. Usually, I give our DNS server + one Open
    source DNS

    Remember that DNS believes the first answer it receives - even if that
    answer is "I don't know".

    Into Fedora, I have :

    /etc/resolv.conf
    nameserver 134.29.9.59 ; this is our DNS Server

    [compton ~]$ host 134.29.9.59
    59.9.29.134.IN-ADDR.ARPA domain name pointer d-9-59.tr.mnsu.edu
    [compton ~]$

    Are you at Minnesota State University, Mankato? Why are you posting
    from France?

    nameserver 208.67.222.222 ; The opensource one : www.opendns.com

    OK

    I compared with the hosts and resolv files on Centos. They are similar.
    today I made a nslookup www.bbc.co.uk
    I got :
    ;; Got SERVFAIL reply from 134.29.9.59, trying next server

    RFC1035 -> RFC2136:

    SERVFAIL 2 The name server encountered an internal failure while
    processing this request, for example an operating system
    error or a forwarding timeout.

    Fix your name server.

    Fix the routing/firewall/forwarder

    After many tests, I don't have anything stable from Fedora version 10 => 12
    I will stay with the version 9.. I have no choice...

    Don't expose a Fedora 9 host to the Internet - it's obsolete and no longer maintained.

    i think that there is some problems.....

    You've got a configuration error - no idea what.

    I checked the DNS in each case... seems to be fine now... but the GUI
    cannot catch the website.

    Verify (using a packet sniffer) that any DNS server you ask is resolving
    names in a timely manner.
