When I go to (I'm using KDE) Menu > System > Add/Remove Software and try to do anything, it freezes and I have to terminate the program! Even if I go via the command line and do this:
[root@localhost pluginconf.d]# yum -y install yum-priorities
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=f
edora-8&arch=i386 error was
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (110, 'Connection timed out')>
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora.
Please verify its path and try again
Now when I type the URL into a browser it doesn't work! My question is how to get this to work?? When files (i.e. yum.conf???) should I be looking in, and how do I get through to the Mirrors to install/update/remove software?
