Question Problem with Fedora 8 yum basic file


I need to know where on the downloaded F8 disc, do I find the basic yum file so I can install it? The system keeps saying I have an update to that file, but since I did not do the install myself and an entirely new to Fedora, I cannot figure out where do I find that file, after inserting the cd into the computer.

Sounds like a key problem to me. Since you don't say how you are trying to install it, I assume you are in the gui and that there is no easy way to tell it to proceed in any case.

Two things to try

From a terminal (you probably need to be root or use sudo), try

# yum update yum

and see what happens. Otherwise you may need to install the rpm manually

# cd /usr/src (or somewhere else suitable)
# wget ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/fedora/updat...fc8.noarch.rpm (I think this link is OK)
# rpm -i yum-3.2.8-2.fc8.noarch.rpm

Problem with yum file install

To All: Thanks for the answers, and , yes, one of them worked. I will just have to get use to Fedora 8, and will only ask when I get stumped as I was.
