need to install Yum tar.gz from telnet shell


i am trying to install yum on fedora core 6, i downloaded the yum tar ball ver 3.4.1 from http://yum.baseurl.org/.

Do i tar xvf yum-3.4.1.tar.gz?, then cd yum? then do i just run ./configure? any make options? or just run "make" (no quotes obviously)


thanks

you are aware that fedora 6 is and has been long dead ? right?
The current is fedora 14 ( fedora 15 will be out is a week )
see the life cycle
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedor...ase_Life_Cycle

"yum" WAS installed by default but dose not work on DEAD versions
the repos ware moved to the historical archives and for 6 there have been NO updates in 5 years

why do you need to install a different version that what is in the historical archives ?

see fedoras End Of Life forum page

I realize this is an old version of fedora but...

it isn't mine, it is a hosted VSP server, the provider wants to charge me to install the software i, need could you just answer the question, and avoid the commentary?

can not and you will not be able to .

find a new host
fedora 6 has NOT had any security fixes installed since Dec. 2007

it is wide open to EVERY known attack from the last 4+ years

DO NOT use a hosting company that dose NOT care about YOUR security and YOUR risk of data theft .
this company should be held criminally libel for this

if they want you to pay$$$ for software installed

then you probably will NOT be able to install the old development tools and everything needed to build a critical system program


but see the End Of Life fedora link i posted ??? maybe
