Yum on FC5- Not working


Hi,

I have FC5 installed on my system and when I tried to install any package using the yum utility, its giving some errors and exiting.
I have a http proxy for internet. So, I would like to know if there is any problem with yum in FC5 and if not , do I have to configure it before using it.

Regards,
Misbahuddin

you could start by actually telling us what the error messages are...

Please try to post the *full* rror next time, but where i've seent that it's often a dns problem, or http proxy issue. if you do need to use an http proxy, then you would set the bash http_proxy variable within the bash session you are running yum. e.g. "export http_proxy=http://userasswd@serveriport" and then run yum.
