I have received the same message with the Add/Remove Applications option in fedora. This error happens no matter what I am installing. Is there a way to fix the problem?
I also used Fedora for a few days and did you try sypnatic? it is really awesome, it's a GUI tool:
and also i never experienced the error and instead ofSynaptic GUI Frontend
apt users have an optional GUI frontend called Synaptic.
Fedora Core 1
Red Hat Linux 9
Red Hat Linux 8.0
i'd recommend using sypnatic or rpmi
yum from the command line is the best way to go and can be used as a replacement for both apt and up2date. You will have to edit the /etc/yum.conf file and add extra sites (repositorys) to the listing. Also you should replace the existing fedora sites with faster mirrors. If you are using it on a network behind a proxy, then the proxy settings need to be specified beforehand.... I can give further instructions if needed, or I could email my yum.conf file. Just say the word.
Lets just say that all packages I have tried to install using yum have installed without a problem.
