I did cd /etc and then mv yum.conf yum.conf.vtedu -- which will tell me

Got it -- and since I'm in Western VA, the closest to you are also the
closest to me; I didn't even need to do that last step.

Running it got me a huge wad of stuff scrolling by (dunno why so much),

don't understand the GPG errors.

I did yum clean :

What is glut, anyway? And mainly: am I golden, copacetic, and generally

Oh and where do I post something to sing the praises of the fedoralegacy
