problems with yum
 
Ok so I used yum earlier to install gnome but for some reason I can't download java or screen I get these errors.

Install 1 Package(s)
Upgrade 0 Package(s)

Total download size: 494 k
Installed size: 795 k
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Downloading Packages:
http://mirror.linux.duke.edu/pub/cen...l6.x86_64.rpm: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 6 - ""
Trying other mirror.
http://mirror.net.cen.ct.gov/centos/...l6.x86_64.rpm: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 6 - ""

Does anyone know what happened?

The target url seems to be valid so I'd guess that your internet connection/dns was failing at the time.

off hand just HOW did you install Gnome ???

yum is very VERY dependent on some gnome files and on python

from the links you gave in the first post you are using CentOS6.3
Gnome 2 should have been Auto installed BY default
unless you instructed the installer NOT to , like for a headless server.

from your other post
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...5/#post4733930
Are you behind a router or proxy ?

sorry about the double post, I posted one and did not see it posted on the forums. I don't know about the router or proxy I got the server from datashack.net and like the other post says my /etc/resolv.conf was blank and when I changed it to nameserver 8.8.8.8 it worked.

So I don't know if I did not do something I was supposed to, or if datashack missed something. I've gotten a server from them before and I never had any issues with the network, I was always able to use wget and yum.

HOW is it you do not know if there is a router between YOU and the web ( yes / no)
or if you ARE or ARE NOT using a proxy ( yes / no )


the std network tools for rhel6 are "ifup" "ifdown" "ifconfig"


and please ANSWER the question " How did you install Gnome??? "
yum is VERY dependent on python and Gnome is ALSO dependent on python that IS IN the "BASE" repo
please post the full command you gave to install gnome desktop
it is only one line of text
