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

I think this a broken from the mirror side at the moment. Jef "seven years bad luck" Spaleta said this yesterday

''My understanding is that there is an issue today with access to the
mirrorlists used in the fc5 repository definitions.  As a workaround
the cgi mechanism used in fc6 to create mirrorlists has been made
available for fc5 repositories.

If you are having difficult using the default fc5 mirrorlists and are
getting error messages like:
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates

You can use these mirrorlist definitions as a workaround:

[core]
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=core-$releasever&arch=$basearch

[extras]
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=extras-$releasever&arch=$basearch

[updates]
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-$releasever&arch=$basearch

[updates-testing]
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-testing-$releasever&arch=$basearch

Take a look at the frontpage of http://fedorasolved.org for more
detailed instructions on how to make the ncessary changes to the repo
definition files to use these alternative mirrorlist definitions.

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.

This is maybe selinux? Tail /var/log/audit/audit.log or /var/log/messages looking for complaints.

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.

Pass on that one, it can be made to work tho.
