Question Getting Error: Cannot find base url for repo: base (CentOS 6)


Hi there,

I'm a newbie and I'm working hard to get this error fixed, but it doesn't work. I looked at the other posts in this forum but nothing helps.

I got this error:
Code:
[root@server ~]# yum install screen
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=6&arch=i386&repo=os error was
14: PYCURL ERROR 6 - "Couldn't resolve host 'mirrorlist.centos.org'"
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base
Can anyone help me to fix this?

Greets,
t.Verbeek

Looks like you are not connected to the Internet.
Please check with your "Network applet".

The link http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?releas...h=i386&repo=os
.. is OK here. I get the expected mirror list.

Did you check the `Network applet' ?

On some installs of CentOS 6 you will have to activate your connection
by using the "Network Manager applet" at every start up.

How to do that? Searched on the web, found nothing. I can't install NetworkManager 'cause by every yum -y command I got the error.

Network Manager comes with Redhat ..It must already installed.

Check the service

"service NetworkManager status"

If the service not running them start using "service NetworkManager start"

If you can see the network icon in above panel then check the setting and make sure you are connected to internet.

Here is a guide to setting up the NetworkManager Applet. It is fairly straightforward and you just need to fetch a couple of dependencies, although for wireless the procedure, it is the same for all.

You should find the tool in your menu under System - Preferences - Network connections, or run nm-connection-editor in a terminal.
