Automate the installation of server fedora 8,,,

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am looking to implement a solution to automate the installation of server fedora8 ,, my problem is when I boot into pxe server that I want to deploy automatically.
At first, it boot fine, the installation begins with the right parameters (set with Kickstart) … Then after entering and validating the root password I get an error message …


Unable to read package metadathe from repository. This may be due to the missing repodathe directory. Please ensure
that your repository has been correctly generated.
Cannot retrieve repository metadathe (repomd.xml) for
repository: UIedited_11. Please verify its path and try again

I hope you can help me on this.

Automate the installation of server fedora 8,,,


Hi There,

      A little tweaking in the system could definitely fix your problem regarding cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository Error.

  •            First is to edit your Repository files;

                            a.    /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo
                            b.    /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo

  •            Second step is to uncomment all the lines that begin with the phrase base url.
  •            Third step is place a statement before all lines that begin with mirror list. Note that it must be done for both


  •            Fourth is to amend your /etc/hosts file and affix the following to its contents. See below figures;
  •            Fifth is to install Yum Software or update your system. Verify with the Yum software if the error is solved and not showing anymore on your screen. Note that these tweaks have some issue in Fedora 11 but apparently it will run seamlessly in your Fedora 8.

Hope it helps.
