    I had fresh clean install of Fedora Core 1

    I ran the Cpanel install script. I wasn't watching, but it must have ahd some problems. During the setup, when I got to the part of running Bind, I noticed the restart process list was empty. I went to run the rndc command, and it wasn't in the system. I finfished the install setup, and went to the Install an RPM, and the list was empty.

    I decided to try and run the Cpanel install again and watched the screen. There was an immediate error.

    Rsyncing with rsync.cpanel.net....Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
    Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base
    Done
    retrygrab() failed for:
    http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/1/headers/header.info
    Executing failover method
    failover: out of servers to try
    Error getting file http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/1/headers/header.info
    [Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found

    I went to the Fedora mirrors list, and checked a couple of them, and the path core/1/headers/header.info doesn't exist with any of the one's I checked.

    Following the error above was many of the following...
    Cannot download http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/1/headers/kdeadmin-7-3.1.4-1.i386.hdr in caching only mode or when running as non-root user.
    Deleting entry from Available packages

    Did Fedora change the path to the header.info ?
    How do I get my software to install corecctly?

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    I finally figured it out.

    cpanel was using the mirrors listed in /etc/yum.conf and for some reason, the only one listed with the default install of Fedora core 1 doesn't work.

    I changed the lines in /etc/yum.conf to a different mirror, and the install completed without errors.

    Hi,

    Even I'm trying to install cpanel on Fedora Core 2 and getting an error for mirrors in the /etc/yum.conf . Can you please suggest what changes should be made or rather, you made to get cpanel installed without errors?

    Thank you.

    FC2 reached its end of life some months ago.

    Visit www.fedoralegacy.org and follow their instructions for updating yum.conf to work with their updates.

    Use Fedora repos: http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/

    Go on, have a guess
    That's not a good idea as those are the final release of the OS and will expose your server to security risks. You should do as webignition suggests and use FedOraLegacy FC2 support, or better yet, upgrade to a supported OS rather than one that is now long dead.
