a "red hat" like system like fedora and CentOS and others have yum already installed


WHAT distro are you using ???? and it's version !!!!

yum is and WAS already installed in RHEL 5
there is no need to REINSTALL IT


from this " baseurl=file:///var/ftp/pub/Server "
are you MAKING your own software reop ?
if so WHY ?

have you paid $$$ for the Red Hat software UPDATES and support
you NEED to BUY the updates from Red Hat

also DO NOT use the rpm command all by it's self -- it will NOT install any missing dependencies
this is why yum is used in RHEL 5 ( up2date in the older RHEL4 )

OR install CentOS 5.3


if you DID install a DIFFERENT yum " over/on top of " the original default installed yum
It might be so messed up , to the point that it might be easer to reinstall the OS that try to figure out what you did.

Ok, the media error is probably referring to the install disk. If it is not in the drive when you try to use yum it will error out. You can change this behavior by altering the /etc/yum.repos.d/media.repo (the name will be the only one with media in it). Open the file and change "enabled=1" to "enabled=0". If there is no "enabled=" line in the file then add "enabled=0".

Try to limit each thread to one topic. New topics go into new threads.
