Hi Roger,
I've been attempting to get a package (abiword) from the extras without 
success.Here are the messages I got when I tried it two ways and a copy of 
the /etc/yum.repos.d/extras.repo.

[root localhost tom]# yum --enablerepo install abiword
Error getting repository data for install, repository not found

[root localhost tom]# yum --enablerepo=extras install abiword

contents of /etc/yum.repos.d/extras.repo

Should I copy a mirror spec from one of the other repos as they supposedly all 
have the same info or is the problem with how I'm calling yum?  I've read 
"man yum" but haven't seen any glaring mistake in what I did above.

Thanks, Tom
