Yum problem

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


For some reason I am having trouble with yum on one of my FC6 boxes. It is an older, slower machine, but I don't have any trouble browsing the web on it, but yum is very very slow, and when I try to update or install on it, I keep getting error messages like the following.

# yum update

Another data point. I had originally installed FC5 on this machine because the FC6 installer was having trouble with the onboard Matrox MGA G100 video card. I then did a system upgrade to FC6
and the video problems seemed to be sorted out.

Both of my other FC6 boxes are working fine, and have no trouble with yum.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.
