N.O. La.
can someone tell me how to reinstall or fix my rpm package list, it is suddenly blank, i've tried everything i could in my whm, and all the ssh commands listed on the subject in the community, and did a manual update via cpanel stable tree.
i just can't seem to get the list back, can someone please advise me.
thanx in advance:)

i am currently experiencing the same issue with brand new rhel5/cpanel server from theplanet. I think it's related with this:

Code:
[email protected] [~/incoming/]# yum install
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Loading "security" plugin
rhel-i386-server-5        100% |=========================| 1.2 kB    00:00
primary.xml.gz            100% |=========================| 1.5 MB    00:00
Error: failed to retrieve repodata/primary.xml.gz from rhel-i386-server-5
error was [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum
now looking for solution on this forum.

from what i tried: i tried to clean up cache, remove the cache dir, but that did not help. other suggested method is to remove a package called fastmirror (or something like that), but that's not possible, since yum fails. other solution (for different OS!!!) is here http://lists.freshrpms.net/pipermail/freshrpms-list/2005-May/013041.html - but did not yet find the correct urls for redhat 5.2 yet...
