Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a Fedora 10 and installed it on VMware. Whenever I try to access the add/remove software nothing happens. Even if I waited so long. this is a fresh install by the way on VMware-workstation-5.5.1-19175.
So what I did is to wait 24hrs to finish downloading Fedora 11, yes I downloaded the newer version thinking that my copy might have suffered some sort of problem. Then I installed the Fedora 11 on VMware-workstation-5.5.1-19175, still, same problem arose.
So I thought the culprit was vmware, so I went to their site and downloaded the latest trial version, then I installed Fedora 11, STILL the add/remove software is empty! nothing's in there as in.
On installation, I made sure that the repository thinggy update was checked but still the add/remove software is still empty.
Please note that I can browse the internet using Fedora on vmware which means that there is an internet connection.
BTW, I'm using Kaspersky Internet Security, I even tried disabling the firewall then finally turning off the entire KIS suite to no vain. My windows firewall is turned off too. My settings on VMware used to be Red Hat Linux Enterprise 5 64bit then further research I read somewhere that he's using Other Linux 2.6.x Kernel 64bit. My copy of Fedora is this one: Fedora-11-x86_64-DVD.iso
I also downloaded OpenSUSE 11 but it runs slow on my machine, Fedora is way much faster (both on gnome).
So can someone please tell me what's going on? Why is my add/remove software empty?
out of the box fedora should have the fedora updates repo turned on ( this is the default )
see the above post BUT DO NOT TURN ON RAWHIDE the fedora rawhide is FEDORA 12 TESTING .
also if you are behind a router then yum might not have net access ,even if firefox dose .
