Arrow Unable to Retrieve S/W Information.


Hi All,
I am new to linux and using fedora 8.when i am clicking on add/remove software, i am getting following message."Unable to retrive software information. This is caused by not having a network connection available.[cannot retrive repository metadata(repomd.xml) for repository : adobe. Please verify its path and try again)." Actually i want to start the Mysql server.How to solve this problem.I am not having any net connection. Is it necessary to do this ?.

Thanks

Why would you go to add/remove software when you're trying
to start a service?


Cheers,

I am reading Linux programming book.In that a program is written to connect to Mysql. So before connecting to Mysql,the author suggested to go to package manager.That is why i am trying to go to add/remove software. Frankly i dont know much about linux. I am learning it.
