None of the above exist on my machine, how do i rectify this, assuming
your memory is correct that is.

On the other hand the following are here but empty...

/var/cache/yum/core/headers
/var/cache/yum/core/packages
/var/cache/yum/extras/headers
/var/cache/yum/extras/packages
/var/cache/yum/livna/headers
/var/cache/yum/livna/packages
/var/cache/yum/updates/headers
/var/cache/yum/updates/packages

being cache folders I'm assuming its OK to be empty? or is it bad?

Arrrghhhhh. Help!!!

Despite all the problems I'm actually finding this quite refreshing
compared to using windows.

Also this is giving me a great insight into how it all works.

Thanks again.
