So how do I get it? Pre-Extras is currently hosted on the FedoraProject.org website, and is available at:


It is available as a YUM repository, and an entry like the following
would suffice (in /etc/yum.conf):

name=Pre Extras

There is a temporary Pre Extras GPG key, which all packages are signed
with. The fingerprint:

pub  1024D/1AC70CE6 2004-12-14 Fedora Pre Extras Release
<pre-extras fedoraproject org>
     Key fingerprint = 5389 DD00 C5BC 5168 12B4  3272 82ED 9504 1AC7
sub  1024g/4E1A9D43 2004-12-14

To import the key:

rpm --import http://fedoraproject.org/pre-extras/RPM-GPG-KEY-Fedora-Pre-Extras

What about bugs?
If you find bugs in the packages, report them at the Fedora Extras

Don't know if this is a bug in the package or a bug in yum ...
during yum update, to update packages I have that are rebuilds of fc2 src.rpms -

I'm running yum-2.1.12-1
I'll try downgrading yum to Fedora version and see if that helps.

My repositories -

3 livna's
2 JPackage's
some repositories of my own creation that are suppose to depend up extras and the 3 livna's
