There is no f11 directory under /usr/lib/util-vserver/distributions on
this installation. I copied f9 into f11 and updated the version numbers.
You are correct though, I'm only getting to a long list of
[Errno -3] Error performing checksum
Trying other mirror.

Which must be because my rpm is too old. Do you know what version I
should be looking for?

I also tried the latest Fedora for which the install provides a
directory (f9), which started by giving me:

  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/yum/", line 278, in
    ctx = gpgme.Context()
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'Context'

It looks like the yum code is assuming an older version of pyme than
what the distro provides.

I'm painfully aware that those problems are very distribution specific.
I'm going to try compiling rpm/yum from the latest source next.
