1.Click here for configuring EPEL.
2.Under How can I use these extra packages? section.
3.Click on "The newest version of 'epel-release' for EL6".
4.you can download the package and install it.

this is Fedora ?? right ?

what version ?
only fedora 17 and 18 are supported

Quote:

[root@jagdish ~]# yum repolist
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, security
repolist: 0
from this output you disabled or uninstalled every required software repo
there at a bare minimum should be
fedora base
and
fedora update

You need to get your network name resolution, i.e. DNS, working first. From what you have shown us, DNS is not working.

CentOS release 6.3 (Final)
that is why there are no updates
only cent 6.4 and the old 5.9 are supported

the "ls" command dose show that you did not delete the repos, but from the above posts you turned them OFF

you have the "vault" repo in there
did you READ the warning ?
( this has not yet been added to ALL the mirrors for 6.3 yet )
Warning:
This directory (and version of CentOS) is depreciated. For normal users,
you should use /6/ and not /6.2/ in your path. Please see this FAQ
concerning the CentOS release scheme:

http://www.centos.org/modules/smartfaq/faq.php?faqid=34

If you know what you are doing, and absolutely want to remain at the 6.2
level, go to http://vault.centos.org/ for packages.

Please keep in mind that 6.0, 6.1 and 6.2 no longer gets any updates, nor
any security fix's.

this applies to CentOS 6.3 now

so if you aree going to keep using 6.3 with out any of the current SECURITY FIXES
then only turn on the vault
edit the line
" enable=0" to "enable =1 "


but upgrading to 6.4 is the ONLY way to get updates

there are NO updates in the vault except for the very LAST updates that 6.3 received

also mixing "The Vault" and the EPEL-Testing is a VERY VERY VERY bad idea

Ok Daljit, don't panic. No, that link doesn't work for me either. It seems your simplest solution is to install CentOS 6.4. Is there any reason you don't do that? Back up all your data before starting. You can find an installation image here. I checked and this link does work.
