Well I did it.  I did something incredibly stupid and now my repos are all hosed.  Not that I'm a huge fan of Up2date,

I recover the stock repos for FC3?

As an alternative to editing this file, you could reinstall the fedora-release package.

Just as a tip for the future:

cd /var/tmp/
wget ftp://.../fedora-release-3-8.i386.rpm
rpm2cpio fedora-release-3-8.i386.rpm | cpio -ivd ./etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources
mv etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

You then have back the original file from the RPM. This works for all
other RPMs the same way. Before extracting the desired content of the
RPM, run "cpio -t" to find out whether the RPM contains relative or
absolute paths - to avoid unwanted override.


That is great. I will certainly keep this for future reference. Thanks a bunch.
