I am using redhat es 5.4, I add fedora 15 repo in yum.repos.d, the fedora 15 using sha256 to generate checksum.

it seems the yum version I am using can't handle checksum generated with sha256.

I am going to access public yum repo, so I can't use createrepo -s sha to fix this.

what can I do ?

Upgrade to the latest version of yum for ES 5.4, maybe it supports SHA256 checksums. If not, I'd just stop attempting to make them work together. (That seems a bit odd to try anyway.) – David Schwartz Feb 11 '12 at 9:15
My linux kernel is 2.6.18. I need to upgrade kernel to >=2.6.34 to make my audio device of my laptop works. Is there any way to upgrade kernel ? I start to use Linux just from yesterday. – LoveChy4Ever Feb 11 '12 at 11:45
I'd suggest switching distributions. Trying to take bits and pieces is going to lead to pain. – David Schwartz Feb 11 '12 at 12:44
switching distributions, I think this is the answer for me. What should I do, just let this question here or delete it? – LoveChy4Ever Feb 14 '12 at 3:34
