File Checksum problem on Metadata File :(
Can someone help me please ?
I don't know if you have already encountered this problem with YDL 5.0.1 release
.... when i try to install an app or simply use command line : yum update
It loads repositories and metadata local file primary.xml.gz and it replies [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum.
Then it tries other mirrors and at the end says
[Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
I believe there is a way not to check this damn checksum file but i don't know where it is.
I use repositories from freshrpms, livna,
I have cleaned cache amd metadata and updated files but no way to resolve this
Thank you for your precious help

Give a try,
It looks like we have a corrupt RPM util-linux-2.13-0.50.0.ppc.rpm 21-Dec-2007 16:16 1.9M on the Yellow Dog Repo server. http://ftp.yellowdoglinux.com/pub/ye.../updates/RPMS/
I was able to find a working one on. ftp://ftp.oregonstate.edu/pub/ydl/yum/5.0/updates/RPMS/
util-linux-2.13-0.50.0.ppc.rpm 1954 KB 12/21/2007 05:11:00 PM
So how does this relate to yum. The default yum.repos on the 5.0.2 YDL only lists the yellow dog server, therefore application like yum or add/remove software are crashing.
Fix: Option 1 Goto an alt ftp server. download a working rpm. install #rpm -Uvh util-linux-2.13-0.50.0.ppc.rpm
Then yum should just work fine.
Option 2: Fix your yum repos.
