Hello list, I have posted this information on the fedora list and no
one there could assist me,
so I thought I would try it on the official yum list.
I am running Fedora 8 x86, with the most recent kernel and nothing
seems to work.
Here is the output of a yum update command:
[root at linbook2 ~]# yum update
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile

I have completely removed and reinstalled yum, yum-metadata-parser,
still the problem persists.
I have tried yum clean cache and yum clean all and still no joy.
I have insured that no lock files or pid files exist for yum.
I have also completely removed and reinstalled the sqlite rpms.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
