THERE ARE NO DOWNLOADS FOR FEDORA 8
and "Loading "priorities" plugin "
that plugin is TRYING to find things

if you MUST stay with Fedora 8 UNINSTALL yum it is 99% useless on fedora 8

and BUILD ALL CODE from the source code.

Ok. I remove yum. I cleaned yum yesterday and it started functioning normal. But today, it's again looking for things. I am removing yum.

Code:
[root@localhost arunkumar]# yum remove yum
Loading "priorities" plugin
Setting up Remove Process

Thank you all.

If the repositories (or a DVD) is available, why is it useless? It can still be used to install and uninstall packages (even if they are old and unsupported).

I'm only saying this because building from source isn't the easiest thing in the world, especially for a "new guy".

Upgrading or reinstalling the current distro is the best thing to do, but I dont see uninstalling YUM as a good thing.

I will upgrade my distro soon. If I have to be using fedora, is it mandatory that I upgrade it once in six months? I need a distro with which I can be comfortable for 1 year. Any suggestions?

And I uninstalled yum using rpm --nodeps -e <yum> .. I couldn't remove it without using nodeps. There were programs that used yum :-(

Every 13 months because thats when the previous versions support schedule ends now.

Switch to CentOS. It is part of the same family of linux but is much more stable and you won't have to learn the ins and outs of a new distro. It's release cycle is the same as RedHat Enterprise Linux.
