Hello everybody, 

I have started a yum respository on install.loncapa.org for Fedora updates.  
I have made packages of gnuplot-4.0.1, perl-MIME-Lite, and perl-MIME-Types 
available.  Those of us running Fedora systems should add the following to 
their /etc/yum.conf file: 

name= Fedora Core $releasever LON-CAPA Updates


yum install perl-MIME-Types perl-MIME-Lite 

should download and install the needed packages.  You are expected to have 
your system fully updated, by the way, so doing a 'yum update' before this 
is probably a good idea. 

Anyone interested in how to create a yum repository should see 


ps. The following is for those who have modified their yum.conf file to 
include more rpm sources: 

The Dag APT Repository [dag] has a package for perl-MIME-Lite which appears 
to be an earlier version and which yum really wants to install.  So it may 
be best to remove [dag] from your yum.conf until I'm bright enough to figure 
out why and what to do about it.
