Seth,

I don't quite understand the thing about no Contenet-Length...but it
appears that FTP urls aren't working.

[root at anduril tmp]# /usr/sbin/yum -d 4 update
 Gathering package information from servers
 server name/cachedir:7.3 main-/var/cache/yum/server
ERROR: Url Return no Content-Length  - something is wrong
URL:
ftp://kickstart.linux.ncsu.edu/pub/realmkit/7.3/i386/headers/header.info
[root at anduril tmp]# 

Now if I do a wget of that URL I get the header.info file fine.

My config:

[root at anduril tmp]# cat /etc/yum.conf 
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log

[server]
name=7.3 main
baseurl=ftp://kickstart.linux.ncsu.edu/pub/realmkit/7.3/i386/

#[updates]
#name=7.3 updates
#baseurl=http://localhost/updates/

#[finished]
#name=dulug finished rpms
#baseurl=http://localhost/finished/
