Problem installing repoforge

Post by optikab » 2014/01/19 18:06:30

I get this error

rpm -ivh http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-rele ... f.i386.rpm
Retrieving http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-rele ... f.i386.rpm
error: skipping http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-rele ... f.i386.rpm - transfer failed - Unknown or unexpected error

By the way my old user apparently exist although, my old logins don't work and a password reset fails
