Description james 2005-04-03 19:08:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; X11; Linux i686) Opera 7.54  [en]

Description of problem:
Sometimes a file download will stop - the server seems to be gone, but yum never 
times-out.  C-c will restart the file download, but from the beginning, not from the 
current file position.  Does yum need a time-out timer?  And some smarts to continue a 
download from the current file position?

Later, after a couple of mirror 404 errors, yum dies with this error message:

Trying other mirror.

I continue to have this problem as well (does it have to do with all these
mirrors returning 404s?).

Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2005-07-29 18:52:04 UTC
what version of yum are you using now?

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-09-21 19:25:57 UTC
This should be fixed with current versions I believe
