Hi, I have been using Pidora on and off now for the past few mths.

Each time I run: # yum update in a terminal it states there are no new updates.

Just doesn't seem right to me.

Am grateful for any help/advice :)

that's funny. I have only received about 2 updates in the 3 weeks I have used pidora. I am assuming that the team are beavering away on pid 19 but it would also be interesting to receive any comments!

I'm using pidora, with an ssh connection and trying to update my system with "sudo yum update".
It appears that the repository url is incorrect. what is the correct url for yum? Below is the error message that I am receiving. Thanks

[erwinb@raspi ~]$ sudo yum update
[sudo] password for erwinb:

I was getting that garbage until I did:

yum clean all

Then the next time you run any yum command, it will download new, clean, "control files", and then things will work again.
Oh, how I wish that the signature facility on this board weren't so broken.

It is broken in that every time you change your signature, all of your posts reflect the change, not just those going forward.

I am experiencing an issue to. Before it worked well, until now:
Code: Select all
[root@raspi ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://pidora.ca/mirrorlist/mirrorlist.cgi?repo=pidora-18&arch=armhfp error was
14: curl#6 - "Couldn't resolve host"
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: pidora/18/armhfp
[root@raspi ~]#
It is not possible to ping http://www.pidora.ca.
Code: Select all
[root@raspi ~]# ping www.pidora.ca
ping: unknown host www.pidora.ca
[root@raspi ~]
My DNS works fine, but I was not able to resolve the IP address of the site. I suspect that he pidora.ca site is no longer available as a DNS entry.

I used to use this command:
# yum clean all && yum -y update if you can not ping some web site by domain name ,you'd better check /etc/resolv.conf 's content,
inside maybe like this :
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 9.9.9.9
nameserver 6.6.6.6
and also you can use this command to check if you can reslove that domain name.
# nslookup www.raspberrypi.org
or enter into interactive mode just use nslookup .....
haha , i hope it can help you. :lol:

I am having the same issue as tedsluis, pidora.ca cannot be reached. I did a reverse look up on the domain and got the ip to try that route but still no go. Maybe pidora is moving their server?

I believe my "/etc/resolve.conf" is okay:
Code: Select all
[root@raspi ~]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by NetworkManager
domain bachstraat20
search bachstraat20
nameserver 192.168.11.1
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4
[root@raspi ~]#
Resolving works:
Code: Select all
[root@raspi ~]# ping raspberry.org

[root@raspi ~]#
nslookup too:
Code: Select all
[root@raspi ~]# nslookup raspberry.org
Server:      192.168.11.1

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   raspberry.org
Address: 208.87.35.103

[root@raspi ~]#
But it does not work when I try the Pidora.ca domain:
Code: Select all
[root@raspi ~]# nslookup pidora.ca
;; connection timed out; trying next origin
Server:      192.168.11.1
Address:   192.168.11.1#53

** server can't find pidora.ca: NXDOMAIN

[root@raspi ~]#
I suspect an issue with the pidora.ca domain.

If you want to visit the site Pidora.ca site with the installation instructions, the wiki and the download links, you can use this link: http://pidora.proximity.on.ca/

http://www.pidora.ca is back! I got an email from Chris Tyler at Seneca. They had a DNS server crash (heat issue):
Code: Select all
[root@raspi ~]# nslookup pidora.ca
Server:      192.168.11.1
Address:   192.168.11.1#53

Non-authoritative answer:

[root@raspi ~]#
But yum still doesn't work:

It seems I don't have permission to access to http://pidora.proximity.on.ca/pidora/updates/18/armhfp/repodata/repomd.xml or that repodata does not exists on the server.
It is the same with the mirror http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/pidora/updates/18/armhfp/repodata/repomd.xml.

Below http://pidora.proximity.on.ca/pidora/updates/18/ all is gone.

I found a bug tracker report for this yum update issue: http://trac.proximity.on.ca/projects/rpfr/ticket/346. And oatley reports in it that he is working on a fix!
