#11912: Pidgin CentOS Repository Broken? Checksum issue

 Hi Pidgin folks,

 I currently cannot use the CentOS 5 Pidgin yum repository.  I get an error
 if I have the repo enabled:

 |  31 kB     00:00
 http://rpm.pidgin.im/centos/5/i386/repodata/primary.xml.gz: [Errno -3]
 Error performing checksum

 Trying other mirror.

 Error: failure: repodata/primary.xml.gz from pidgin: [Errno 256] No more
 mirrors to try.

 According to a web-page I found talking about the "Error performing
 checksum" error, this can be caused if your yum repository is created with
 createrepo using an SHA level that isn't supported by (sigh) RHEL/CentOS.
 In this case, SHA256.  (Apparently they need repos created with SHA1

 When I downloaded the primary.xml.gz file manually it did show that it
 uses sha256 in some places..

 Here's the link to the article:
