man !! its been like this for a week and after 2 new reinstallations im sure it aint a problem with my computer. im greatfull for any help.
hey this guy who calls himself horny is just great. His solution to yum not installing xine is just what I needed. I've tried severally to use yum but it doesn't work well, until I used horny's suggestions. Now I can use yum to upgrade, install and do what I like with stuff instead of going root in shell.
