need yum.conf with http server not ftp

i am running on fedora core 1 and i f*** up my originall yum.conf. now i need a new one, but can anybody give me one that uses a http server not a ftp server? thats because our lan doesn't support external ftps. and it would be good to use an server from europe.

i'm a :newbie: and don't know much about yum. i searched and tried for a week but nothing worked.the best thing was that it downloaded many many header files but nothing what i told, then i breaked up.

thanX very much

hey...that yum.conf looks great...i just started a [/B]yum update glib[/B] and it downloads some headers. will it auto update my glib or have i something to do after this?

i have a very very bad connection...with this new yum.config it downloaded more than 5 hours just headers and then i got this:


getting /var/cache/yum/base/headers/fribidi-devel-0-0.10.4-4.i386.hdr
retrygrab() failed for:
  Executing failover method
retrygrab() failed for:

I noticed your signature says you're from Romania. Try replacing the servers in your yum.conf with mirror servers closer to you (if you haven't already).

yes, but there are only ftp mirrors in romania. in europe i can fin only 2 http mirrors.
is there no chance to make yum not to download all these headers from all programs? if i say yum update kde it should only search for kde.

and sorry for my english!!

thanX a lot
