I don't know very much about Fedora, but yum seems to work like Debian's apt-get: there is a configuration file and you must add in it the links to the repositories. It's very easy. Open your terminal

Code:
bash-4.1$ su -
Password:
root@linux:~#
and try to put the links on your rsync script.


[]'s!

Hi,

you seem to be asking about sudo but what you are actually interested in is configuring yum. Try searching for "yum tutorial" or similar on the web.

Evo2.

PS. sudo is just one way of obtaining root privileges. It happens to be the default in Ubuntu, but AFAIK, not in Fedora. More likely what you whan is what Luccas posted in post #4.
