Fedora first update (with RH NetW) hangs on "Fetching rpm header: glibc-2.3.2-101.4"


Hello. I just activated my Internet connection that I get a message saying I have 75 updates available! So they tell me to connect to the Red Hat Network, I download "the new key" and so on, I click Ok (I let everything by default) there are two channels for the update, ok so I launch up2date but after a while, it hangs on "Fetching rpm header: glibc-2.3.2-101.4".
Can anyone help me!? It would be appreciated! Thx,
Max

Hi. I think it's just the RedHat servers being really slow.

You might want to consider using YUM, and putting your nearest ftp mirrors in /etc/yum.conf

Ok I try with the mirrors list there but none of them seems to work (I tried like 10 of them). I first type #yup check_update
then I can get:
retrygrab() failed for..
failover: out of servers to try..
550 headers: no such file / directory
..
is it the right way to use yum?
Thx,
Max

The format of the yum.conf file is a bit odd.

I'll post mine when I get back to my Linux box. (I'm at work at the moment).
