Yum How To Install Software


Hi!
I am new Linux. When I log in with root or user. I open Terminal, I type "su -" with user and enter password, it is OK. I want install software by "Yum".

$ yum install numlockx //I enter then it message
Loading "Installonlyn" Plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting reposities
Core [1/3]
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo:core
Error cannot find baseurl for repo:core


I don't understand how to install software by yum. I tried to install others software by yum but all of them have a same message above. And

I can't open Add/Remove Program, it is warning unable. May I know reason why ?

Thank you

well that sounds like a proxy server/firewall error, are you behind a proxy server/firewall? do you need to input password/usernames for your proxy server?

Although i'm not sure why you can't acces your add remove programs though ... can you give us the error message you get when trying to open add/remove programs?
