unable to set up yum
 
I am unable to set up yum in Fedora Core 4. Attempts to import RPM-GPG-KEYs give errors of the following kind. Please help

[root@aprem ~]# rpm --import *** dag.wieers.com/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt
error: *** dag.wieers.com/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt: import read failed(-1).

Thank you for the reply. It was exactly the code that you have given in your posting that I tried. I rplaced 'http://' with '***' as my posting with a url was not allowed

Try putting:

http://dag.wieers.com/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt

into the Firefox address line and see if the key is downloadable. That loads the key into my browser.

If the key is not displayed by Firefox, then you either have a networking issue or something like a DNS resolution issue. Assuming your download attempt fails, try:

ping dag.wieers.com

'ping dag.wieers.com' does not work. I shall try to resolve the networking issue. Thank you for the reply
