Introduction Email with a plee for help :-(

Hi Guys and Gals,

My Introduction to the group.

My names Darren Foster. I'm a relative newbie to the fedora community.
Been using Fedora Core 5 now for the last month or so and finding it
very interesting so far I've broken a few things and happily fixed them
as you do. I'm a <spit> Windows </spit> Tech support guy for my local
community. Providing support to small businesses and individuals.  I
have to say i love the ease in which windows breaks so easily (rubs
hands in a Bill Gates kinda way).   

My aim is to learn enough about Fedora to implement it in a real world
scenario for some customers that are interested in using it as a file
server and also run their own web servers.

I have a book on LAMP that i have successfully used to set up a web
server and get it working which was great fun.

I have also successfully set up a SAMBA Server on my home network and
this all seems to be good.

My plee for help.....

YUM - serious

Um i think I'm in trouble. I cant get Yum to work for love nor money.
I've lost my yum.conf file in the /etc/ folder.  The other yum files are
there including the yum.conf.bak file.  I renamed the .bak file as
yum.conf but that hasn't solved the issue I'm having.

If i try and use Yum i get the following :-

Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates

MPLAYER - less serious but would be nice to fix.

i installed MPLAYER the other day and for love nor money cant get it to
run.  If i try to run it from the command line i get the following.

mplayer: error while loading shared
libraries: /usr/lib/libavformat.so.50: connot restore segment prot after
reloc: Permission Denied.

FLASH PLAYER - much less serious but would be nice.

Just won't work.  Ive placed the plugin file in the plugin folder and
double checked it many a time and it still wont work. 

OK Peeps 

Thanks in advance for any advice or pointers you can give.


Darren Foster
