NetworkManager and YUM Update Issue

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

As been noted, the NetworkManager update in Fedora 9 and Fedora 10 prevents YUM from performing a regular update. Apparently due to a bug in the Fedora Update system. The following error may be seen:
Public key for NetworkManager-0.7.0.99-3.fc10.i386.rpm is not installed
The solution is coming soon, but for a temporary workaround YUM supports an […]

Update to RPMFusion

“Sulphur” smells only just a little.
Installation Media
The first thing I was happy to see was that the team finally decided to offer Fedora 9 […]

Fedora 9 Released

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

Can you feel the burn of “Sulphur” ?
After an unfortunate 2 week delay the Fedora project just announced the release of Fedora 9. Fedora has always been known to be the latest and greatest and this release is no different, rough edges and all. A great deal of hard work has been done to put […]

Download Older Versions of Fedora

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

A frequently asked question is: Where can I find a specific older version of Fedora? The correct answer is: If you CANNOT find it on the official Fedora Mirror List, then chances are it is too old and not supported.
Unless you need an older version for some very specific task, I strongly recommend that you […]
