Hello all,

I've actually updated my system yesterday using
>> yum update
and installed all the packages.
Today, I've been trying to update my qt using yum, here's the error I receive

>>yum list qt\*
Could not retrieve mirrorlist h t t p://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-8&arch=i386 error was

I've googled for this error but I don't see anything working for me.

At first glance this looks like a problem with the proxy setup. Are you using a proxy server? If not, comment out those lines in yum.conf. Otherwise you will need to give a valid ip address for the proxy server along with an appropriate username and password.

Issue solved
 
Hello,

The problem was with the proxy server at my end.. my colleague figured out that and fixed it .. I had to authenticate with the server.. and everything's fine now..
I've commented out the lines also.
Thanks.:o)
