The default yum config - which we include - points to the official
Fedora mirrors, and those don't really support unsupported
architectures like ARM. Surprise!

Of course it's in my list of things to fix. In the meantime, here's
what you can do

 - edit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-update.repo -- look at the first
section, disable it (enabled=0)

 - edit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo -- look at the first section,
disable gpg checks (gpgcheck=0), comment out the mirrorlist line, and

You're done! Note that it is a partial repo, and it only has the
packages at the F14 release time versions. Additionally, some packages
are missing or tagged wrong.

If you want a package that is missing, ping Peter to see if it'll be
available soon.

If you see a package or dependency bail out complaining about
python(abi)=2.6, let Peter know. The repo is just showing the wrong
package (and the right one is likely there).
