This has been so since Friday, Mar 04 2011 or so, I believe, and only for RHEL 5 (we're running 5.6 on several machines here). Just thought I would mention this.

(RHEL 6 repo seems to work fine.)

comment:2 Changed 8 years ago by bruno

It seems that the ftp server is a bit overloaded with lots of people pointing to it. I've increased the capabilities, so it improves stuff, but doesn't solve completely the pb.

comment:3 Changed 8 years ago by bruno

  • Milestone set to 2.2.9.6
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Another problem is linked to the checksum algorithms used.

You can check with the beta of 2.2.9.6 under ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test/rhel/5/x86_64 that it should now be fixed. (That version also fix an issue in newt mode with mondoarchive)
