yum configuration issue
Hi All,

I have configured YUM on the server machine but when i try to install a package via YUM, I am getting an error message.

I did the configuration like below.

1. created a directory in /var/ftp/pub/repos
2. dumped all the packages from the iso image to the repos directory.
3. Installed createrepo and ran it.
4. edited the config file server.repo

After the above step, tried to install telnet using yum using the command "yum install telnet" and got an error message " telnet-...Failue:...from InstallMedia: [Error no 256] No more mirrors to try."

After this I realised to run "yum clean all" command and tried to install telnet again. But got an error message saying " Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: InstallMedia. Please verify its path and try again."

I checked for the repomd.xml file in /var/ftp/pub/repos/repodata and I was able to find it.

But still I am having the same problem. Pleas help

Try this howto: and check you don't have any other repos defined

yum repolist
and check the contents of /etc/yum.repos.d
