I'm new to yum and have some questions I didn't see answered in the
I have mirrored the updates for Redhat 8 on my http server in
In that directory there are i386,i586,i686,noarch and athlon directories
with the latest
updates in them. I run yum-arch without any problems and it creates a
directory in the RH8_updates directory with the rest of the above
The server [Redhat 7.1] runs yum version yum-0.9.4-1_7x from RPM. [it
On the RH8 client I use yum 20030203.tar.gz and set the yum.conf file as
[RH8 doesn't like yum-0.9.4-1_7x from RPM]
[root at celeron root]# cat /etc/yum.conf
Then I run 'yum update'. It shows me all the available rpms and I select
install them. All is good untill :
Traceback (most recent call last):
File /usr/bin/yum, line 38, in ?
File yummain.py, line 240, in main
errors = tsfin.run(callback.install_callback, '')
TypeError: an integer is required
Everything gets updated except kernel and kernel-smp rpms.
If I run 'yum update' again it sits there for hours doing nothing and
'top' shows yum using %99 resources.
So far I/m very happy with yum.
