view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I wanted to clear the cache of yum so id rm -rf /var/lib/rpm/* and rebuild the rpm (just wanted to free up space) but somehow i got this error Code: Could not parse metalink https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=fedora-$releasever&arch=i386 error was No repomd file Error: File /var/cache/yum/i386/$releasever/fedora/metalink.xml does not exist and i solved by rebuilding my rpm package metadata using fedora18-release.rpm (this solution was provided in one of the threads here) so here is what i basically did Code: rpm -Uvh --replacefiles --replacepkgs /$MYPAT (HowTos)
