Re: FC5 - Add/Remove Software

When attempting to use "Applications" --> "Add/Remove Software" the message "Unable to retrieve software information" is displayed and the program exits.

I loaded FC5 on 2 computers and the same message occurs on both.

Any clues to why this is happening?

Is either connected to the internet? This program is pirut, which is a frontend for yum, which by default just accesses internet yum repositories, and not local media. You can add a file called /etc/yum.repos.d/local.repo (there's a howto somewhere, that's been referenced on this list before) as a temporary workaround, they're planning to implement this feature in the future. The name "Add/Remove Software" is misleading.
