Unhappy installing f2c and yum problem


hi
i have two questions:
1) how can i install f2c in fedora core 6
2)software updater package shows that one package is available to update.
i saw that the package is glibc.
but when i tried to update it the following error msg comes:

errors were encountered when downloading packages.

Details:

glibc-common - 2.5-18.fc6.i386: failure: glibc-common-2.5-18.fc6.i386.rpm from updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.


now what should i do?

Re f2c you might find it here, but check out the -f2c c compiler option.

Re the "No more mirrors to try," check your mirror list in /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo, although that message is often displayed when either you network connection is bad or the repository itself is being updated.

You might also want to check for how long FC6 will continue to be updated. I believe that the Fedora project will soon drop support for FC6. (They've already dropped support for older Core releases. See the stciky note at the top of the Fedora forum.)
