mkvtoolnix Fedora repository metadata expiration
Sunday 1 August 2010 @ 11:59 am

If you’ve installed the RPM that enables the yum repository for MKVToolNix then you might get hit by the following message when yum tries to access the repository:

http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/fedora/13/x86_64/repodata/primary.xml.gz: [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum
Trying other mirror.
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/fedora/13/x86_64/repodata/primary.xml.gz: [Errno 14] Downloaded more than max size for http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/fedora/13/x86_64/repodata/primary.xml.gz: 2805 > 2451
Trying other mirror.

This is caused by the meta data cache not being up to date. You can manually fix this by running “sudo yum makecache“. A better approach is to make yum update its meta data for the bunkus.org repository itself after a couple of days. For this to work simply update the bunkus.org repository RPM package by running the following command:

sudo rpm -i http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/fedora/bunkus-org-repo-1-2.noarch.rpm
