Getting YUM setup (Fedora v3)


I posted a few days back about some problem I had been having. I got the network problems figured out but I can't seem to get Yum configured properly to work. I tried googling it, but I can't figure out what needs to be configured or edited in the yum.conf file. I tried copying one of the setup files exactly and it didn't seem to work, but I believe the Fedora versions were different.

If anyone could walk me through it, either on here, or preferably on an Instant Messeging system, it would be much appreciated.

Here is my contact info:

Thank you in advance!

Re: Getting YUM setup (Fedora v3)

What is the error message that Yum spits out? There is a little bit of configuring that you need to do to get it working.

It says that I have enable updates which is good, but that I need public GPG keys. Am I missing something?

Basically I'm trying to install SQL and Samba so that I can use PHP/MySql, and also be able to just upload everything on my network rather then FTP everything in.


Oh it gets even better. Now my matching won't let me shh in at all, its find downstairs, but I can't ssh in ARG, I will fix this tomorrow.

The GPG thing can be solved by doing this:

Do a "# yum list all | less", find out the full name for the programs you want to install, eg. samba, or mysql, then do a # yum install [program]

When I list it, it says:

MySQL-python.i386 - installed


Yet when I go to activate the server (using Webmin, idk if you all use it, but its nice for newbs like myself) it says it isn't.
