Re: [K12OSN] 5.0 EL repos dead/outdated?



I'll just second this as a very possible cause. The quick fix is just
to add proxy=httpd:your.proxy.server:proxy_port to the yum.conf file
which will let yum and yumex work. The http_proxy option is required
for wget to work correctly which is what the add additional software
scripts use.

Sincerely,
Dave Hopkins
