If you downloaded 2008 at any point prior to this posting, and you have set up repositories via rpmdrake, you probably got Cooker repositories.

This is not what you want. ;)

Please use the repository configuration tool to remove all remote repositories, and then add them again. You should get proper 2008 repositories now.

Sorry for this error!
