  • I get the above message when using the Intel Graphics Installer on my Fedora 20 system. The window also says "Remvoing repository... Failed". Any ideas of how I can resolve this error? Thanks.

  • Hi - sounds like your system is still configured to look for its installation media -
    perhaps a CDROM or other optical drive. The sources are usually configured in
    /etc/yum.repos.d - you should look there for something that mentions InstallMedia.

    In addition, when the installer runs, it will try to remove its old repository config
    (just its own, it doesn't try to remove any other config) and put a new copy there:
    To this end it should ask for permission to do so via policykit (which should be running
    by default if you are in Gnome or KDE one of the standard desktop environments)

    If you didn't get a pop-up dialog asking you for your password when you started the installer,
    then this isn't working and you'll need to figure out why.
