http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Came to my computer this morning and something had happened over the night as it was put to "sleep" but required a power up to run. Then noticed several packages were not working properly (notably thunderbird). Tried: sudo yum -y update and received the following messages after a long list of packages to be updated: first: [Errno 5] Input/output error: '//var/lib/yum/rpmdb-indexes/conflicts.tmp' then after a second attempt: [Errno 5] Input/output error: '//var/lib/yum/rpmdb-indexes/version.tmp' tried yum clean all to no avail. Help would be appreciated! (HowTos)
