    YUM Problem

    I run Fedora 17 on a toshiba 64 bit labtop.
    I have tried to install a grub2 editor from ksmanis repo, it failed
    after that whenever I try to run yum , I got the following error message
    " Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit

    File contains no section headers.
    file: file://///etc/yum.repos.d/home:ksmanis.repo, line: 1
    '<!--\r\n' "

    I have installed yum manually again but no change
    I have run "yum clean all" again no change
    even the update is failing with the same error of yum
    Please help

    Was this problem solved? Can we post the solution so that others may benefit also?

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    The solution to the problem is very simple.
    I deleted the file /etc/yum.repos.d/home:ksmanis.repo
    this totally solve the problem
