Full Version: Yum Problem
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

I'm using Whitebox 3.0 latest updates [for testing OpenVPN], and I get this error with yum [after everything was updated, after I tried to download Openvpn.rpm]...

[root@test1 /]# yum install rpmbuild
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: White Box Enterprise Linux 3.0 - i386 - Base
Server: White Box Enterprise Linux 3.0 - i386 - Released Updates
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 60, in ?
File "", line 188, in main
File "", line 766, in get_package_info_from_servers
File "", line 103, in HeaderInfoNevralLoad
ValueError: unpack list of wrong size

while I tried to get rpmbuild, to build a rpm package from the openvpn source...

any ideas?

I found the solution to you're problem ...

Seems to happen on slow repository servers. Just ran the same command a few times.

ya i just got this error a few minutes ago when checking for updates using up2date...
so its not just me who is getting the error....i posted the output of the up2date command
in this post

so this might be the same occurance as using yum
