I recently did my first installation of centos on a vm. I tried playing around for a while but when I tried doing an update it says Determining fastest mirrors for a while then gave me Could not retrieve mirrorlist [url]
i am trying to install the GD2 extension for PHP but i am not sure how to do this. i have try the
yum install php-gd Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://apt.sw.be/dries/fedora/fc4/mirrors-rpmforge error was [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: rpmforge
I have a server running centos 5 located in a datacenter. I am setting it up as a web server but haven't bothered to move the domain from my current registrar to the server as there are a lot of things I need to get done before that. I am having a problem where I couldn't install httpd. So i tried some of the basic fixes i knew as far as yum clean all and checking that my /etc/resolv.conf was ok. I have the two nameservers I am using listed there but I have no hostname set because I simply dont have the domain transferred or anything like that yet. Is that the reason I am having these issues. I installed the system with a network install fine about a month ago so im not sure why I am having problems now.When i try to ping centos.org I get an unknown host www.centos.org error. I tried changing the resolv.conf to have localhost as the hostname and I still have the same issues. I havent made any changes to anything that would potentially cause this.
My etc/resolv.conf looks like this: search nameserver 12.34.567.8 nameserver 12.34.566.8
Also it seems the problem may have got worse after yum clean-all because before that when I would try 'yum install httpd' it would show the files and filesizes and ask to install, when I would select yes It would give an error showing it could not find the fastestmirror. Now it doesn't give any file size or files or an option to approve the install. It just responds with an error saying it could not retrieve mirrorlist <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution' Error Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Repository updates is listed more than once in the configuration Determining fastest mirrors YumRepo Error: All mirror URLs are not using ftp, http[s] or file. Eg. 13 is not a valid release or hasnt been released yet/ removing mirrorlist with no valid mirrors: /var/cache/yum/i386/13/base/mirrorlist.txt Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base
The main Fedora repo file has this entry: baseurl=[url]
I want to know about the "$xxx" dollar sign bits - $releasever $basearch
I know from browsing there and certain mirrors that they contain directories for 13, 12, 11. So does that mean the file entry is just a "general" line but the version installation of yum _knows_ it should put 13 against those 2 entries?
IOW, does the background python script or binary expect to see that actual use of the dollar sign parts in the repo file?
I tried to make a new entry baseurl with a known mirror, making appropriate changes for its directory structure _and_ using the $xxx bits but on trying it out got errors usually about "repond.xml" and/or "gpg-keys".
I omitted them next just using the actual letters - .../releases/13/Everything/i386/os/
I wasn't paying proper attention when adding a repo to yast and need to find the file were the info is saved to delete this. The problem is that whenever i use yast it comes up with an error code saying that it can't find the data for the 'problem' repo. Have tried zypper rm but that comes up with a similar error advising that the data is in a format that was not expected. My thinking is to track the file were the yast repo source details are saved, delete this and then just add the repos that i use back.
I try to do a upgrade on my fedora 6 ill 10. But when I try to write yum update or yum upgrade on my server a get this error: yum update Loading "installonlyn" plugin Setting up update process Setting up repositories Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: extras
I have an install of slack64 13.37. I am unable to find grub in the repo via slackpkg search grub. It doesn't seem to be in the release package list either. Ditto the extra and testing repo. Has it been removed?
I'm having problems mounting an Edirol R-09HR digital audio recorder (as a USB drive, to read the recording files) on a system running openSUSE 11.2. fdisk or other partitioning tools recognize the device as a "W95 FAT32" drive with a filesystem code of 0b, apparently. I was under the impression that mounting this as a vfat file system should work, but the mount command dies complaining "FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors" and "VFS: Can't find a valid FAT file system." This happens even with a freshly formatted card in the recorder. The device mounts properly with Windows XP systems and late-model Ubuntu/Kubuntu systems, Any clews as to what I'm doing wrong here?
i'm attempting to know and understand fedora more and i will spend probably the next month pouring through all the forums and documents to answer more of my own questions. but there's quite a bit here, so i'd thought i'd ask some noob questions to get me started a little.
ive installed fedora 14 64bit and chosen only kde as the desktop. i selected an extra 2 repos besides the default, fedora 14 -x86_64 and fedora 14-x86_64 -updates. i believe this kernel is installed: 22.214.171.124-83
1. i can only see the 2 extra repo's as being "checked" in kpackagekit, shouldn't i see the default repo also ?
2. i dont have an applet in the system tray indicating the system is up to date, does fedora have this by default ? also after a clean install i ran yum check-update and yum update but the message sayes: "no packages marked for update". i'm not sure if the system is auto-updated during install or not, but with other distros iv tried there is always atleast a few updates needing to be done after install.
3. is kpackagekit the fedora gui package manager ? i dont see any others.
4. i want to upgrade to nvidia drivers, but i think i am missing a non-free repo or something. when i enter: yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64 i get messages stating "no package" i get the same message with yum install nvidia-settings.i also tried this: LANG=C yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree info akmod-nvidia but it sayes repo not found.

If I disable the repo-non-oss repository the update works fine. The URL I have for the repo-non-oss repository is:
Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss
This has been going on for over a week. Do I need to use a different URL for the non-oss repository? I live in New York, United States.
I downloaded OpenSUSE 11.2 x86. Recordered,ran. I selected language (polish) and chose "Install" (originally "instaluj ). Installer booted, but I can't install because "linuxrc" was ran. Linuxrc can't find install disk, repo. I'll install with local DVD-RAM drive.
I am using Fedora 13 and I have one program (wine) that I need to start grabbing for the updates-testing repo instead of the default repositories in order to get newer versions. I think I can figure out how to add that repository, but I need to know if there are any others I need to disable or any other changes I need to make to my system so that I don't confuse my set up with conflicting updates.
Also, is there anything special I need to do to be sure that only that one program is grabbed from the testing repo when I run regular updates?
My centos 5.6 firewall server shares its Internet connection with my windows machine behind it. After the required settings, the windows machine can ping valid ip addresses but it cannot browse valid url (despite the fact that DNS is set for it).
I have been working with ssh for a long time without problems but suddenly, without any changes to the configuration, I am facing problems. When I try to login I get the following message and the connection is closed:

I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora (because of Unity) and everything works just fine. my printer. It is Canon LBP6000. A had problem installing it in Ubuntu as well, but finally I did manage it with this tutorial. Problem is that this tutorial does not work in Fedora, since update-rc.d is not valid in Fedora. I am not really a linux geek, just a long time user of Ubuntu. I can follow any tutorial given, but I havent found one for this printer & Fedora. Canon site says that this printer is tested on Fedora 12 and 13 64bit but I doubt it anyway. I am running Fedora 15 beta 64bit with Gnome 3.
