I have installed fedora8 in my system...It works cool, auto detected all my hardware...i really like the look and feel...But i am facing some problems related to package manager..
Here we have internet connection through LAN using ccproxy software in the server with password authentication...I configured the network and now mozilla works fine...Then I editted the /etc/yum.conf file for the proxy settings....But when i tried to start pirut it shows an error,
"Unable to retrieve software information. This could be caused by not having a network connection available" .Under details tab, it says "Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again"
my yum.conf file is pasted below
exactarch=1But i am facing some problems related to package manager
# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d
# The proxy server - proxy server
# The account details for yum connections
I tried to install through the terminal, the error message is pasted below...
[root@localhost jabir]# yum install xmms
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mir...ra-8&arch=i386
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error nonnumeric port: '808?'>
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again
