[Errno 12] Timeout: <urlopen error timed out>


Hi! To All GURUS,

I already do (yum clean all) and even copied files from other server to my /var/cache/yum/* and still error in finding mirror site. I dont see any problem on my internet access since opening mirror on firefox is not a problem. Kindly HELP;

[root@clnode1 addons]# uname -a
Linux clnode1 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5 #1 SMP Tue Dec 16 12:03:43 EST 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

[root@clnode1 addons]# yum update
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: mirror.centos.org
* updates: mirror.centos.org
* addons: mirror.centos.org
* extras: mirror.centos.org
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 12] Timeout: <urlopen error timed out>
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: base. Please verify its path and try again

Thanks,
Ram

Hi!
You could try;
Code:
yum clean all && yum clean metadata && yum clean dbcache && yum makecache && yum update
or
Code:
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db* && rpmdb -vv --rebuilddb
Will you post the output of your /etc/yum.repos.d/.

Do you use a proxy server to get to the net? Check under Advanced->Network->Settings in Firefox's settings dialog.
If so http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...xy-server.html
