This is very strange - has been happening the last few days. I just
upgraded this system from 5.3 to 5.7 on Monday and the problem started some
time after that (but not immediately because I know I used yum Monday
evening after the upgrade)
I get the following error from yum, but it goes away if I --disablerepo=epel
The funny thing is that the listed xml file I can easily wget from this
Also having the issue with other 5.7 systems that were upgraded from 5.3
several weeks ago and had been working fine since.
I did some googling and found some things to try like "yum clean all" and I
even deleted the rpm database based on advice from one site, and then
rebuilt it from scratch. But nothing.
[root at solexa-db varlog]# yum -y install hddtemp
