This is the default `yum.conf' :
Code:
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum/$basearch/$releasever
keepcache=0
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
exactarch=1
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=1
plugins=1
installonly_limit=3

#  This is the default, if you make this bigger yum won't see if the metadata
# is newer on the remote and so you'll "gain" the bandwidth of not having to
# download the new metadata and "pay" for it by yum not having correct
# information.
#  It is esp. important, to have correct metadata, for distributions like
# Fedora which don't keep old packages around. If you don't like this checking
# interupting your command line usage, it's much better to have something
# manually check the metadata once an hour (yum-updatesd will do this).
# metadata_expire=90m

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

Ok Now I'm getting the following "Insufficient server config - no server found. Aborting."
What in the hell does this mean?

lleb,
Until I added the following:
exactarch=1
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=1
plugins=1
installonly_limit=3
I had nothing, except the from
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum/$basearch/$releasever
keepcache=0
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
exactarch=1

as posted above that is the exact default yum.conf...

you might want to copy/paste to replace what ever you have in there now.

Code:

In my yum.repos.d I have preety much what you have but I think I'm missing mirrorlist for mine. Because every time I use yum I get the following Insufficient server config - no server found. Aborting." So what in the world does that mean? Someone explain please?
