Applications -> System Setting -> Add/Remove Applications (RPMs from CDs)

Or install synaptic:

As root
$ yum install synaptic

and it will be available at
Applications -> System Setting -> More System Settings -> Synaptic Package Manager

Here's a good link for configuring yum. It works a lot like urpmi (if you've used that in Mandrake.)

hi guys!

i tried the above command.

i ended up with below message, nothing happen no activity at all.

"retrygrab() failed for:
http://fedora.redhat.com/releases/fe...rs/header.info
Executing failover method
failover: out of servers to try
Error getting file http://fedora.redhat.com/releases/fe...rs/header.info
[Errno 7] HTTP Error (CannotSendRequest):"

its the same thing happen when a run "yum check-update" and also failed to use up2date.

im using a private IP address, and i was able to browse the net. i think, maybe, the proxy setting should be included in the "yum.conf" file. Anybody?
