Yum.conf configure help


I am having issues configuring my yum.conf file to use the mirrors and other sites to download from. I keep getting this error

[root@localhost ~]# yum update
Setting up Update Process
Setting up Repo: dries
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: dries
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from dries: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
[root@localhost ~]# yum update
Setting up Update Process
Setting up Repo: dries
http://dries.studentenweb.org/yum/fe.../repodata/repo md.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Trying other mirror.
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: dries
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from dries: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.



Any ideas?

If anyone has one that works, could you post it?

It looks like the dries.studentweb.org website is no longer running. Instead try this yum.conf file which I used for fc1 and fc2:

[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
