Yum hasn't been working on my system for some time, and I really need to get it working. Please help.
I'm on FC4 x86_64
I keep getting something like:
[root@ORION etc]# yum update
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: core
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from core: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from core: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
there is a long pause after the line
First I thought there must be a problem with my .repo files, but couldn't find anything. In the end I unistalled yum and installed yum-2.6.0-1.src.rpm
I've been using smfinley FC4 install guide for setting up my repos.
yum doesn't seem to be able to connect to anything, and I'm starting to think there maybe something at a lower level that is blocking yums connection to the net. Wget doesn't seem to be able to connect either, atleast when I do:
i get:--22:25:48-- http://ftp.belnet.be/packages/dries....c4.rf.i386.rpm
Resolving ftp.belnet.be... 188.8.131.52
Connecting to ftp.belnet.be|184.108.40.206|:80... failed: Connection timed out.
i can get this file with firefox without any problems.
so what is up?
It suggests there might be something up with my firewall/router but I can think of anything, it all looks normal.
I hope someone can help, as I've failed to find anything with google, and FC4 without yum is like ... well, not good...
