Sorry about that. I'm new to both yum and linux and still in the process
of figuring out what to ask where. I think my followup question DOES
pertain to yum...

Ok, so I did "yum update yum" and got 2.1.3. Cool. Now, however, when I
run any yum command (eg. yum info yum) I get the following error:
Setting up Repo: base
repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: base
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from base: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to
I'm not sure what to try next here. My yum.conf looks standard (to my eyes):
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Unreleased Updates
name=Fedora Core $releasever - Development Tree
Is there some other file I need to configure somewhere?
I've tried searching the web for more info on this and I'm unfortunately
drawing a blank. Also, I don't find anything on --obsolete in the man
docs (where should I be looking to research this stuff???) What exactly
does --obsolete do?
Any pointers would be appreciated.
