Reset Yum and Synaptic to their default configurations


I'm using FC4 and I edited the config files for those two package managers a bit too zealously. How would I reset their settings to default?

You can always uninstall yum and synaptic. Then reinstall yum via rpm and synaptic via yum. Also, its always a good idea to copy your original files as .bak before editing.

rpm -e yum
rpm -e synaptic
rpm -ivh yum

And just fyi, I'm trying to reset them because I'm getting the "invalid key" error when I try to install something with Synaptic, and I read that it's because of messing with the Yum config files.
