Dear Friends ,

I cannot install the package using yum i RHEL 5 . When I install a rpm then it shows the following error :

[root@server ~]# yum install dovecot
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: rhel-debuginfo

My rhel-debuginfo.repo file is below :

[root@server ~]# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/rhel-debuginfo.repo
name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux $releasever - $basearch - Debug

Do you have a subscription to Redhat? If not, that's your problem. If so, use your support and call Redhat
