Whatever rpm package I try to install, the result is always the same.

[root@kone RPM]# yum install
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Released Updates

[root@kone RPM]#

A while ago it did work but not anymore..

Usually you won't specify the stuff you usually just specify a package like:

yum install gkrellm

Your repository might not have xmule too. You can see what packages are available with 'yum list' then pipe and grep part of the name.
[root@sanity root]# yum list | grep gkrel
gkrellm-daemon i386 2.1.28-3 base
gkrellm-devel i386 2.1.28-3 base
gkrellm-wireless i386 2.1.28-3 base
[root@sanity root]#

If it doesn't have any dependancies you can always just install it with a normal rpm command.
