try this...

su
yum erase yum-presto

if edited your fedora-updates.repo file then you just need to restore the old one and everything should work fine (if you didn't save a copy - remove the lines you added and remove the # sign from the old baseurl line.)

If yum is erroring because of a corrupt plugin that may not work. You could try using rpm directly.
Code:
rpm -e yum-presto
That should remove the yum-presto plugin.

Umm it no worky

I have reinstalled presto and cleared all the caches. I have also tried copying someones post of the [Update] section to my file (even tho mine looked different somewhat o.o Still it doesnt work for me. Wondering if its down for a little bit or...?? idk


[root@localhost Pete]# yum update
Loading "priorities" plugin
Loading "presto" plugin
Setting up and reading Presto delta metadata
No Presto metadata available for fedora
http://lesloueizeh.com/f8/i386/updat...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (111, 'Connection refused')>
Trying other mirror.
No Presto metadata available for updates
http://lesloueizeh.com/f8/i386/updat...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (111, 'Connection refused')>
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: updates. Please verify its path and try again


My [Update] section looks like:
[updates]
name = Fedora 8 - i386 - Updates
failovermethod=priority
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/updates/8/i386/
#mirrorlist = http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mir...d-f8&arch=i386
baseurl=http://lesloueizeh.com/f8/i386/updates
enabled=1
gpgcheck = 1
gpgkey = file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora

I also tried copying the example one in an earlier post.

Whats goin on!?

I can open that file from Firefox, so the DRPM repo hasn't gone offline - As Demz mentioned try temporarily disabling the plugin like this:
Code:
yum --disableplugin=priorities install package
or if you'd like to update
Code:
yum --disableplugin=priorities update package

Thumbs up

Thank you Firewing1

This is a great info and hopefully will be on a default installation

EDIT:
Just wondering if the following is ok:

Quote:
root@redhome yum.repos.d]# yum update
Loading "presto" plugin
Loading "protectbase" plugin
Setting up and reading Presto delta metadata
No Presto metadata available for google
No Presto metadata available for livna
No Presto metadata available for fedora
No Presto metadata available for adobe-linux-i386
primary.xml.gz 100% |=========================| 1.4 MB 05:30
updates : ################################################## 3940/3940
0 packages excluded due to repository protections
Setting up Update Process
No Packages marked for Update
[root@redhome yum.repos.d]#

Thanks again.

Yup, everything's fine - It read in the Presto metadata and found no updates for your system.

I tested yum-presto on a recent F9 install, a full update saves 85%!

Code:
yum -x dasher -x policycoreutils-gui -x policycoreutils update

....

Transaction Summary
=============================================================================
Install      1 Package(s)         
Update     126 Package(s)         
Remove       0 Package(s)         

Total download size: 250 M
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Downloading Packages:
Downloading DeltaRPMs:

....

Size of all updates downloaded from Presto-enabled repositories: 47M
Size of updates that would have been downloaded if Presto wasn't enabled: 250M
This is a savings of 82 percent
Note that I had to exclude 3 packages in the update due to a dependency resolution problem.

In Fedora 9 the mirror-list line to put in /etc/yum/repos.d/fedora.repo (in [redora] section) is

Code:
mirrorlist=http://presto-mirrors.anmar.eu.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-f$releasever&arch=$basearch
(and run 'yum install yum-presto' first)

Updated howto for F-9
I've been seeming similar savings, always roughly between 70 and 85% which is great! Hopefully presto will be fully integrated with the build system by F10 or F11.

there's seems to be some confusion. what really is requred to change in the repos to use yum-presto? in this thread it says only the mirrorlist line but in https://fedorahosted.org/presto/ it says to add also the suggested baseurl changes.

do we do both or only one?

Only one - Either work though. I'm using their instructions from the "Easy Setup" header, but if you'd like to use the instruction from the "Hard Setup" header (baseurl) that will work too.

Firewing1,
I note you use this mirror-list address.:

mirrorlist=http://presto-mirrors.anmar.eu.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-f$releasever&arch=$basearch

For those that live in North America, is there an alternate that would work better? Or does it matter?

Regards,
Bob

There are no alternatives, sorry. There is only one i386 mirror and one x86_64 mirror. The mirrorlist automatically chooses the right one for your architecture. We just get to wait until deltarpms get included in the official distribution.

Firewing1, just a heads up that the mirrorlist url has changed for the .newkey repositories. It's now mirrorlist=http://presto-mirrors.anmar.eu.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-f$releasever.newkey&arch=$basearch in /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates-newkey.repo. Our mirrormanager redirects .oldkey to the normal Fedora mirrors.
