You have to check the yum repositories under /etc/yum.repos.d and in particular check if the path on the server is still valid, since FC5 has been discontinued some time ago. Then consider if upgrading to a newer release can be an option.

Ok. You have to check the file /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo and see if the baseurl specified under the [core] section is still valid. Fedora Core 5 is quite old, so there is a chance that the original repository has been displaced onto another path in the fedora server.

Anyway, I strongly suggest to upgrade (or to do a fresh install) to a more recent release. Fedora 10 is the last stable release of fedora, now!

Sir kindly check this
is this ok or not..

Code:
[core]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/
mirrorlist=http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/fedora-core-$releasever
As you can see, these URLs are not valid anymore. The mirror list points to a non existent page and if you try to go to http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...a/linux/core/5, you will find an empty directory!

So you have to locate a still active server and change the URLs accordingly. Here is the advice from the Fedora Download server:
Quote:
ATTENTION
======================================
The contents of this directory have been moved to our archives available at:

http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/
So you have to navigate through the suggested URL and find the one suitable for your system, assuming $releasever = 5 and $basearch = i386 or x86_64 (based on the actual architecture of the system). For example you can try to modify the [core] section of fedora.repo like this (assuming the architecture is i386:
Code:
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/
#mirrorlist=http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/fedora-core-$releasever
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY
Note that I have commented out the mirrorlist line and uncommented the baseurl line after changing the URL.

This is another story: maybe another yum session was still running, so you have to wait for the previous session of yum to finish. There is a chance that the automatic update is setup, so that when you login it activates (and keep yum busy) to retrieve the list of available updates and show you a pop-up message on the desktop. If this is the case, you have to let this process to complete before running yum from the terminal. Hope this helps.

The error message is quite clear: file not found! Try the following, using the correct URL:
Code:
wget http://download.pear.php.net/package/DB-1.7.13.tgz
