Have been trying various commands, this one is from an example here
on the list..


[root boatbuyer etc]# rpm -Uhv
ftp://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/10/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-*noarch.rpm

And your suggestion..

[root boatbuyer etc]# rpm -Uvh

- transfer failed - Unknown or unexpected error

Also put baseurl's into /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo
enable=1
Is this where Yum looks? Because they don't seem to match?

1. My larger problem is that named, messagebus and nfs [FAILED] or
don't work correctly?

2. There are many broken links, most of them within /etc? Should I
delete them? Start over?

3. Unable to do ISO; DVD and USB are no longer readable in 'gui'?
Not network connected.

OR

Can I use any of these recently downloaded files?

kernel-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.src.rpm
rpmfusion-free-stable.noarch.rpm
xine-lib-extras-freeworld-1.1.16.2-1.fc10.i386.rpm


Would like to update by Yum but perhaps other options are
available?

Is is possible to build and implement kernel 10 overwriting the
broken links and getting services working again? simple?

Reluctant to shut down the machine...can someone help??

Thanks,
David..
