yum problem


Hi
I'm new to Linux Fedora Core 5.
I have a dell laptop D610.

- My Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200 wireless isn't working.
Because my wireless is down, I have no access to internet to download
files from the Linux desktop.

When I tried using yum to install the firmware for the above wireless, why am I getting this error when I type
in /lib/firmware


[root@localhost ~] yum install ipw2200-firmware
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
core [1/3]
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core

I get identical error even when I type
[root@localhost ~] yum -y update


Linux kernal version is 2.6.15-1.2054

Any help is appreciated.

Please post the contents present in the file /etc/yum.conf and of files present in /etc/yum.repos.d/.

From the error it appears there is no URL configured for the "core" repository.

Appreciate your quick response.
I don't have internet access since my wireless is down so I can't
cut and paste. But this is what I have:

in /etc/yum.repos.d, files are
fedora-updates-testing.repo
fedora-updates.repo
fedora-legacy.repo
fedora-extras.repo
fedora-extras-development.repo
fedora-development.repo
fedora-core.repo

in /etc/conf

[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
keepcache=0
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum/log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=1
plugins=1
metadata_expire=1800

#PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN seperate files named file.repo
#in /etc/yum.repos.d




One web site points to adding lines

[atrpms]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - ATrpms
baseurl=http://dl.atrpms.net/fc$releasever-$basearch/atrpms/stable

[freshrpms]
name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - freshrpms
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms

but I'm not sure they are the right ones since I downloaded
ipw2002 and not ATMrpms or freshrpms.

Do I make sense here ?




I added those lines mentioned above, reboot and I still get errors
saying

[root@localhost ~] yum -y update
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
atrpms
http://dl.atrpms.net/fc5-i386/atrpms...ta/repomd.xml: [Error 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')>
Trying other mirror.
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: atrpms
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from atrpms: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
core [1/3]
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core

Could someone help ?



When I click on Fedora GUI
Applications->Add/Remove Software menu, a Package Manager window shows
up with Error saying Unable to retrieve software information. Once
I click ok, the Package Manager Window disappears.
Is this a related problem to the above issue of my laptop wireless network isn't configured yet ?

What do I do now ?



What actual rpms I need to download to copy in CD ?
I downloaded
ipw2200-1.2.0-45.1.fc5.at.i386.rpm
ipw2200-firmware-2.4.8.at.noarch.rpm
ieee80211-1.2.15.tar
ipw2200-fw-2.4.gz
ipw2200-1.2.0.gz

but I don't know which one to use or if I still miss anymore files.
Please offer detailed instructions on how to use rpms to install.

Do you have red Hat subscription? If yes then better you activate it. It is giving it because you do not have the subscription activated. You are using RH but which version ?
If you need it, you can go to dag wieers and get the rpm for apt and rpmforgrelease for your version and install it to use apt-get instead of yum.

[Edit]

But why do not you use Cent OS. It is derived from RH just without the logos and enterprise support. It is as good as RH if you are not paying for the subscription.
