Description Kyle R Maxwell 2005-06-09 15:33:36 UTC
Description of problem:
up2date crashes when trying to update from the repositories.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I'm not able to reproduce this particular problem at will, but running "up2date
-u" or even "yum update" results in errors, either 404 in up2date (from all
mirrors) or "[Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum" in yum (when
reading primary.xml.gz from all mirrors). This part might be site-specific, but
I don't think the below crash output is.

$ sudo up2date -i gaim gaim-meanwhile
