I follow various bugs on Red Hat Bugzilla, and I just received a notification from the Fedora Update System that a new package was available for testing that supposedly fixes a bug I was interested in. I wanted to test it, so I tried to follow the instructions.
Unfortunately, although the packages are described as having been "pushed to updates-testing", I see no evidence that they are actually there yet. It seems somewhat silly to publish a command for testing an update that initially doesn't work, but this is apparently what they are doing on a regular basis!
I tried a couple of things:
- Commented out
/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates-testing.repoto make it use (what I believe to be) the "master" public download site
yum clean all
but these made no difference to the outcome - still no new packages available, according to yum.
Details: It's mesa-libGL (and the other mesa packages) for Fedora 14.
