Re: [K12OSN] YUM Error



Thanks for the help.  It was indeed a DNS problem.

The config file this is /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo

How this works is that yum retrieves the file specified in the
mirrorlist
parameter (http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/fedora-core-3 for
FC3)
and picks out one of the URLs to use as the baseurl.

If you can't fetch
http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/fedora-core-3 
it will get the "Cannot find a valid baseurl" error.

This likely to be a symptom of a problem, rather than the problem
itself.

Try using wget to fetch the mirrorlist file:

    wget http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/fedora-core-3 

That may give you more useful error messages.

Double check that your DNS is correct:

    host www.google.com 
    host fedora.redhat.com
