Download RPM package using yum without installing or updating

If you want to only download an RPM package without installing it, you'll need to install the yum-plugin-downloadonly.noarch package first.  This will then add options to the yum command allowing only downloads of RPM packages without installing them.    This is particularly handy if you just want to download a package for extracting single files […]

Red Hat Linux Fedora: Fedora 13 to Fedora 14(64) upgrade.

In this upgrade, I planned to skip a version to see how things go jumping up two levels.  Unfortunately reading this post from The Register about Linus Torvalds had me thinking back to F14 again.  (This brings back fond memories of the KDE 4.0 desktop upgrade issues in F9 that didn't go so well.  I […]

Red Hat Linux Fedora: Fedora 12 to Fedora 13 upgrade.

Fedora 13 has been out now since around May 25th, so it's time for the semi annual upgrade.  Unlike with previous versions, I've now switched to the GNOME desktop since I have been finding the KDE desktop to be far less intuitive then it's former competitor and far less responsive.  (As you recall from the […]

Red Hat Linux Fedora: Fedora 11 to Fedora 12 upgrade.

Fedora 12 has been out of the oven since about Nov 17 so it's high time I upgrade before it spoils.  As with the previous release, I look forward to any new features in KDE 4.3.  (As you recall from the previous upgrades, KDE was introduced rewritten almost entirely in Qt4).  Also noteworthy to mention is the […]

RedHat Linux Fedora: Fedora 9 to Fedora 10 upgrade.

Well folks, it's upgrade time again.  It's been raining releases from Fedora lately, each one coming out almost every 6 months so here we are.  My own installation is over 4 years old and I took it from Fedora 1 to Fedora 10 in that time. (You can search here for the older upgrade procedures)  […]

RedHat Fedora: Fedora 8 to Fedora 9 upgrade.

The Fedora 8 to Fedora 9 upgrade follows the general procedure outlined on the very first Fedora Core upgrade page: RedHat Fedora: Fedora Core 1 to Fedora Core 2 Upgrade .  If you have not already upgraded to F8 please visit  RedHat Fedora: Fedora 7 to Fedora 8 upgrade. page first before going up to […]

Sendmail: low on space / SYSERR(root): returntosender: cannot select queue for root

Not a big post today.  Just a solution to a problem I ran into earlier.   This may appear self explanatory if you assume disk space issue, as in this case the error is actually not referring to mailbox size. PROBLEM Feb  8 04:02:06 lhs sendmail[4105]: l18924AB004105: low on space (SMTP-DAEMON needs 0 bytes + […]
