How do i tell if the fedora-release package is installed? is that the
gui for add/remove programs. If it is when i try and look at that i get
"unable to retrieve software information. This may be cause by not

When on the command line and logged in as root user the following
command should tell you:
rpm -qa | grep fedora-release
If that returns nothing then you have to manually download the
fedora-release package (and possible the fedora-release-notes package)
for the version of Fedora that you have installed.

What version of Fedora do you have installed?
Was there some steps that you did previously that might have caused
packages to go missing?
