Acquiring [latest] Fedora Core 3 kernel source

Acquiring [latest] Fedora Core 3 kernel source

Post by Andrew Gid » Sun, 17 Apr 2005 00:23:49



Following directions I found in several places, including:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

I tried:

up2date --get-source kernel

This always yields a 404 error.

I'm currently running 2.6.10-1.770_FC3.

Is only the latest kernel source available (--showall
tells me that 2.6.11 is available)? No...I just forced a
download of 2.6.11:

up2date --force --download --src kernel

And it reported a 404 on kernel-2.6.11-1.14_FC3.src.rpm.

Am I doing something wrong with respect to these source RPMs?

What is in your "/etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources" file look like?

Mine has these "yum" repository configuration lines:

yum fedora-core-3 http://www.yqcomputer.com/ $ARCH/os/
yum updates-released-fc3 http://www.yqcomputer.com/ $ARCH/
yum-mirror fedora-core-3 http://www.yqcomputer.com/
yum-mirror updates-released-fc3 http://www.yqcomputer.com/
yum updates-testing http://www.yqcomputer.com/ $ARCH/
yum-mirror updates-testing http://www.yqcomputer.com/
yum development http://www.yqcomputer.com/ $ARCH/
yum-mirror development http://www.yqcomputer.com/


Me, too.


Try again, using the above "yum" lines. Show us all the output if it
fails.

HTH.

Interesting. Several lines that you've uncommented are
commented out in my version. I didn't do this (at least
knowlingly).

yum fedora-core-3 http://www.yqcomputer.com/ $ARCH/os/
yum updates-released-fc3 http://www.yqcomputer.com/ $ARCH/

yum-mirror fedora-core-3 http://www.yqcomputer.com/
yum-mirror updates-released-fc3 http://www.yqcomputer.com/

#yum updates-testing http://www.yqcomputer.com/ $ARCH/
#yum-mirror updates-testing http://www.yqcomputer.com/

#yum development http://www.yqcomputer.com/ $ARCH/
#yum-mirror development http://www.yqcomputer.com/

I've uncommented those final four lines, and re-run the command:

up2date --force --download --src kernel

This downloaded a different version of 2.6.11 (2.6.11-1.1240_FC4 instead of
the 2.6.11-1.14_FC3 I grabbed earlier today). It also seemed to grab the
source RPM for 2.6.11-1.1240_FC4. But it then complained about a lack of
a signature:

########################################
kernel-2.6.11-1.1240_FC4.i6 ########################## Done.
kernel-2.6.11-1.1240_FC4.sr ########################## Done.
The package kernel-2.6.11-1.1240_FC4 is not signed with a GPG signature. Aborting...
Package kernel-2.6.11-1.1240_FC4 does not have a GPG signature.
Aborting...

Do I need --nosig with [some of] these additional repositories?

And this still doesn't help if I want the source to the non-testing or
non-development version, does it?

^^^^^^^
+-----+---- DON'T USE THE FORCE, LUKE!


No! Visit redhat.com, go their download section and get the
necessary GPG keys. Once you've found the keys on the web site, do
this:

# rpm --import url:/of/the/key/you/want


Go back and look at what you've un-commented in the "sources" file.
Re-comment the testing repos.

My configuration is set to skip "kernel*", so I thought this a simple way to
get around that limitation.


Okay. I have the keys that work with the channels fedora-core-3 and
updates-released-fc3, though.


Okay, but doesn't this put me right back into my initial situation: Unable
to get the kernel source for 2.6.10-1.770_FC3?

So here's the output that's failing. I've reconfigured up2date to not skip
the kernel, and I've ceasing using the --force option. It does seem to be
trying to GET the proper file, but the file doesn't seem to be there.

If I delete the resulting zero byte file and retry, I'll get the same
error albeit likely with a different server name (due to the rotation).

Hmm... I found the RPM here:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

However, that appears _not_ to be where the "mirror" said it would
be. Don't just uncomment the "sources" entries, try cutting and
pasting the ones I posted. Below is a transcript of my attempt.

Notice that I asked for a specific kernel version; the first time I
got the 2.6.11-is-the-latest default.

BTW: I captured this using:

# TERM=dumb up2date script /tmp/log
# cut -c-72 /tmp/log

BTW #2: since you are crossposting to so many groups, please set the
"Followup-To:" header using your posting tool. It's just polite.

I had this problem and solved it by use of the Harrison Ford Anti-Ninja
Method: I just grabbed the RPM I wanted directly off the Red Hat server!
