you did replaced <My Router IP> with the real ip of the router, right ?
something like
10.0.0.1
or whatever the ip is from the router.

Code:
route add default gw 10.0.0.1

NM_CONTROLLED=no

GATEWAY=192.168.1.254
I had told you about the Network Manager bug...


I think other friends are not considering your above output with attention..



Code:
your NETMASK=192.168.1.254
which should be usually

Code:
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
it can differ from your net to net..

just vim you /etc/sysconfig/networking/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

and manually edit netmask.


I hope this would solve your problem

and then do update through yum

Cheers!!


vim

Sudo is disabled by default in Fedora. I don't know why are you using sudo command being root??

Once you are loggedin with root account then you don't need sudo..


Cheers!!

I replaced <My Router IP> with my ip address and that error had occured...



-----------------------

the settings in the "/usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt" file is displayed as:

USERCTL= yes|no
PEERDNS= yes|no
IPV6INIT= yes|no
TYPE= Not Listed
DEVICE= Not Listed
BOOTPROTO= none|bootp|dhcp
IPADDR= (Empty)
ONPARENT= yes|no
NM_CONTROLLED= Not Listed
NETMASK= (Empty)
GATEWAY= (Empty)

should there be default values or do I need to enter them?
