All partitions? including /tmp and /var/tmp if they are separate partitions.

$ df -h

 correct
 if i disable addons repo all is well
 md5sum shows the primary.xml.gz file is the same as the one on working
 machines

okay - then a simple test.

wget the primary.xml.gz from the addons repos on that machine.

do it at the prmpt then run
xmllint --noout primary.xml.gz

on failing machine

$ md5sum primary.xml.gz
1b53def5a5feaa75fd3b6732ed0de0d6  primary.xml.gz
$ xmllint --noout primary.xml.gz
primary.xml.gz:1: parser error : Start tag expected, '<' not found

^
$ ls -l primary.xml.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 201 Oct 19  2009 primary.xml.gz



on working machine

$ md5sum primary.xml.gz
1b53def5a5feaa75fd3b6732ed0de0d6  primary.xml.gz
$ xmllint --noout primary.xml.gz
$ ls -l primary.xml.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 201 Oct 19  2009 primary.xml.gz



maybe you have a weird proxycache in front of that system?

 yes, yum does not work :)
 it has been running as configured for several years

See - I like it when people say things like the above "running as configured for years" - that's nice to hear.


 i ran 'yum update' to update from 5.3 to 5.4
 update had no problems
 i performed the same update on several other machines and had no problem
 all machines are configured pretty much the same
 all machines are 32 bit

can you run a:

rpm -Va

look for anything _odd_

nothing significant


-sv
