Boa on Fedora 11 Fail

Tried for 3 days to get Boa working on a clean Fedora 11 install. Four VMs failed. The only machine it works on is a crusty Fedora 11 image installed on physical hardware. Failure mode is service boa start returns with [Failed]. Nothing in the logs. After editing the init.d/boa file to output more info we still don’t see anything. Going back to Fedora 10 VM.

Update: Submitted bug 527582 to RedHat.

Confusing Yum Error

Yum in Fedora 11 could use some work on error reporting.  While I have no doubt the following message was technically true – it wasn’t very helpful in diagnosing the problem.  This failure was caused by the loss of Internet connectivity.

Errors were encountered while downloading packages.
