Timeouts setting up repositories in Yum
Hi hope someone can help, I'm having real problems getting Yum to update on my machine (FC6 x86_64). I keep getting 'connection timed out' when its trying to retrieve the mirrorlist. Occasionally it'll work on one or two of the repositories (core and \ or updates)ie. I get the little 100% bar appear, but then it fails on extras (or updates). I've tried adding timeout=300 (with various values) to the conf files, I've tried using yum clean all and yum clean headers, i've upgraded yum manually to the latest version. I can ping the repositories and access the URLs in my browser with no problems. I'm in the UK so I was hoping maybe someone has streamlined their files to work here. If anyone has, if you could post your yum.conf and core, updates, and extras repo files, I'd really appreciate it. I'd also be greatful for any other suggestions. Thanks.
Note: when I say getting yum to update, I mean update anything e.g Yum update, yum install yum, etc.
