It did, only i havn't touched anything, and i was just about to switch to my root acount to work on getting a few of these to work (i found my gedit wasn't working either for some reason) and i did a yum update meaning to do yum remove, and i found that it was working again, so was gedit. I haven o idea what in the world happined, but thanks for the link :)

Strange... but the update servers are up...

i cant wait till next week when i finaly can get that FC6 DVD from my dad, he has been gone on a trip... :( i cant wait till he gets back.

thanks again :)
