Hi,
I came back to Blag after about a year or so and just installed 9k and as requested used yum instead of apt and when I do yum update I get this error

Code:
 yum update
http://www.blagblagblag.org/90000/i386/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: blag. Please verify its path and try again


I have an internet connection working OK.
Can anyone advise me about this error? Maybe the Blag repo is out of action at the moment?
Thanks

Thanks,
I read the topic you sent.
I think I'll wait till the server comes back online.
I hope they can fix apt-get too.
Hoping it won't be too long.
Regards

The server won't be coming back online, from the looks of things. Please use the mirror.

Can any one "mirror the mirror"? At the moment it's a single point of failure. If that server goes down for any reason *pft*. I can show you how I've sent this mirror up if you want.

Code:
 du -sch public_html/blag/
70G     public_html/blag/
70G     total

As far as bandwidth is concerned I know that there is at least one person a day grabbing the whole lot. Also a few crawlers have found it. Anyway this is the crontab that I had set up to mirror the repo.

Code:
jayeola@ks355011:~$ crontab -l
# m h  dom mon dow   command
0 0,6,12 * * *  rsync --timeout=600 --archive  rsync://rsync.blagblagblag.org/blag/90000 /home/jayeola/public_html/blag/ --verbose


One could use wget --mirror if you don't know how to set rync up.

ouch, i mean 70gigs of space is no biggie i've got plenty of spare drives around, but the only problem is that the only link i could provide for this would cap @ max of 200kb/100kb d/u - so it will take me like a week to get all the stuff in sync. all further syncs i can channel through a different link, so that the speed on this one would be dedicated to the repo only.

should i even bother?

I have mirrored the entirety of the i386 RPMs so that it can be used to update blag90k i386. I have only mirrored the source RPMs for blag-specific packages and have not mirrored any x86_64 packages at all.

As I do not have enough bandwidth to have people downloading this off of me, I cannot set up a public mirror at the moment, but I will do so if jayeola's server ever goes down.

Is there ways we could get distributed hosting for this? 70+ GB per day is going to murder most peoples allocations of bandwidth.

i've uploaded an iso to http://voodoostress.net/blag/BLAG-90001-i386.iso

with this account @ present I have 150 GB of space & 1,500 GB of monthly bandwidth.
if i will start getting closer to the monthly bandwith limit i will have to make an iso unavailable up to the end of that month.

with ~190$/year i could get unlimited space/bandwith, but as much as I hate admitting it I am rather broke atm and can not afford to pay entire amount by myself, if somebody is willing to participate lets talk about this, unless somebody else has other ideas as far as free hosting goes.

as far as distributing repo data - i think the only way to do so would be to split the repo. on the other hand this also increases the possible failure points...

i almost have the server ready to start mirroring the i386 repo on the 200/100 link, and i will start wget shortly.

I have used the "repo" fix suggested by extraspecialbitter and it works a treat except for the following ; when I tried to install the printer driver hpijs I got this message -
warning: rpmts_HdrFromFdno: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6df2196f

Public key for net-snmp-libs-5.4.1-19.fc9.i386.rpm is not installed.

Is there any way round this as I can't use my printer without this driver.

I'm assuming that you're using "yum" and not "apt-get". To suppress the GPG key check you'll have to edit the "*.repo" files under /etc/yum.repos.d. There should be a line in the file that reads as follows:

Code:
gpgcheck=1


Change to the following:

Code:
gpgcheck=0


If you're using apt-get, let me know - there's a similar change to be made in the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.
