Hi, I'm having some issues with yum. I'm not sure if it's just something I didn't configure right, but I've been trying everything I could.
The problem I'm having is when I do the update even with the default config I had, it just hangs there forever. Eventually it tells me it was unable to get to the header info file, and the url it gives me that failed works when I try it in a browser on a different machine.
# yum check-update
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Base
Exiting on User Cancel
I had to cancel it, as it was taking too long to even get an error message to post here.
Then here is my yum.conf file below. I tried different urls and it did not work. Even the default conf file did not work. I also tried the $releasever and $basearch in urls, but upon reading that it's only to help maintain the .conf easier, I tried a more direct approach below.
# vi yum.conf
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
#name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Unreleased Updates
#name=Fedora Core $releasever - Development Tree
(I had to take out all the urls because I have less than 5 posts)
Nothing seems to work that I try. Although the server I'm in through ssh that I'm doing this on is connected just fine to the internet because I can even ftp to most of these sites without any problems.
Can someone please help me with this problem? I appreciate it very much
